Ippon Judo Dojo, Inc. (February 2nd, 2001, Lakewood, Washington)

We officially opened Ippon Judo Dojo, Inc. on February 2nd, 2001 at the Lakewood Family YMCA in Lakewood, Washington. I am proud of what we have accomplished in the first ten years, it's been an amazing journey. We were blessed with many talented athletes such as Travis Stevens (3x Olympian and 2016 Olympic Silver Medalist) and Robert Davis (2009 NAIA Collegiate National Wrestling Champion). We were also blessed to have George Uchida (1972 USA Olympic Judo Coach and 8th Degree Black Belt) as a mentor and friend to help guide us in the right direction during the early years.
