The Gentle Way

Posted on October 20, 2011

When I’m not being an artist/graphic designer/archivist/social media curator, I am also a judo sensei. I began learning judo at age 6 from my great-uncle Henry “Hank” Okamura. He brought judo from California to Manzanar Internment Camp and then to Chicago. I was a good competitor and was National Champion a few times as a kid, but my favorite part of judo is teaching.

After my shoulder surgery at age 13, I was invited on the mat by my sensei to help instruct with my sling still on. That’s when I realized that for me, judo was more than just an activity, it was a lifestyle.

The video below features the head of our club, Brett Wolf, and what we believe judo really is:
