I began Judo in junior high school in 1966 at St. Ann’s School in Brooklyn, NY.
I continued in Judo while at Kirkland College in Clinton, New York until my return to NYC in 1980. Once back in New
York City, I joined the Columbia University Judo club and Judo Kai of Englewood. I am now an Assistant Judo coach at
New York University, working with the Head instructor, my husband. We also teach Judo at the Brooklyn Martial Arts
club in Brooklyn, NY.
I hold the rank of Rokudan (sixth-degree black belt), am registered with the United States Judo Association and a
current member of USA Judo.
I adore sharing Judo with my students, and never miss an opportunity to tell people the benefits of a life in Judo. I can’t
wait to reconnect with my sisters in the Martial Arts at Special Training.
