    • David Cheverie
    • Bruce Neeno
    • Mark Langberg
    • Steve Rust
    • Jacob Dempsey

    This is very large number of referees going to the Nationals from Alaska. I am sure we will be one of the most represented States. This just show how dedicated the Alaska Judo Referees team is to honing their craft to provide the best possible refereeing for the competitors here in Alaska.

    To the right is a picture of the refereeing team at the Nationals in Hawaii. As you can see we are all in Hawaiian shirts. A very rare sight indeed!! See if you can pick out the Five Alaska Referees in the picture to the Right!

    You can see Bruce and Steve in action in the photo to the right.
    We all gained a lot of experience refereeing at this National level event. The first day ended around 9:30 pm, The second day finished up around 6:00pm and we had a short day on Sunday which ended around 1:30pm.

    As you can see from the photo we were provided Hawaian shirts to referee in.

    After the competition was over we had a​​ ​​great dinner and some very good refreshments to end the evening.

    A big thanks to Alaska Judo inc. for supporting its referees to attend this National level event. The knowledge gained here will be spread to all the Alaksa referees to help support and grow our referee program.

    Also a huge thank you to Mark Langberg and the 50th State Judo Association as together they were able to get Alaska Judo one of the Referee Judo Care System used at this event.

    Referee Clinic with International Referee Calvin Terada

    Referee Clinic Jan 28th, 2014 7:30 at MVJ Dojo. ​Sensei Calvin Terada IJF “A” Referee put on a great Referee Clinic last night at the MVJ club. We had about 15 coaches, referees and competitors attend the 1.5 hour clinic. Calvin was kind enough to also join us on the mat and workout with our combined kids and senior classes from 6:15 to 7:30. The clubs that were represented at the clinic were, Anchorage Dojo, Mountain View Judo club, Mat-Su Judo Club, and also Artic Knights Judo Club was in the house as Christopher (Matt) Shelborne was in town and came by. It is always nice to have Judoka on our MVJ mats that are from out of town.
