Our greatest glory consists not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.” – Professor Jigoro Kano, Founder of Judo.

There are two ways for Hudson Athletes to earn funds for travel expenses:

  1. Attend the Yonezuka Cup Tournament held every September.

  2. Attend as many Hudson Yudanshakai organized workouts and clinics as you can.
