  • "Judo has given me so many things in my life, it taught me how to control my body, co-ordination, discipline, and how to push through and deal with things that I don't like to, but do because I have to do. It taught me leadership and how to follow. I believe that Judo has made me a better person, member of my community, and friend." - Coach Joseph Sapp

    "In short, resisting a more powerful opponent will result in your defeat, whilst adjusting to and evading your opponent's attack will cause him to lose his balance, his power will be reduced, and you will defeat him. This can apply whatever the relative values of power, thus making it possible for weaker opponents to beat significantly stronger ones. This is the theory of ju yoku go o seisu." - Dr. Jigoro Kano
