Each morning and afternoon, judoka will learn from a rotation of our highly ranked Judo Instructors. There will be a blend of instructional time and time to practice. In the evening, Judoka can practice what they’ve learned and test their skill at Daily Randori. Finally, on Friday, we’ll have a Shiai (tournament) giving judoka a chance to compete.
Our Judo schedule is designed to give a significant amount of time on the mat and in instructional classes(i.e. Coaching Class and Referee Class). Additionally, we make sure that there is good time to enjoy our fantastic camp site and to socialize with old and new friends. Below is an example of how the day is scheduled:
7:30 – 8:30 Breakfast

Want to hit the Judo tournament circuit soon as a referee? The International Judo Camp can help with that. Class will be taught by an International Judo Federation “A” referee, who offers an environment that’s great for new referees to learn it all and experienced referees to brush up on new rules and hone skills. On Friday, the last day of camp, there will be a camp tournament. This will give Referee students a chance to test what they’ve learned while they complete the requirement for certification.
Led by Olympian Parnel Legros (Barcelona 1992 Games), campers will have the opportunity to gain a Judo coaching certificate. Legros has coached several international champions such as Dariusz Mikolajczak, Garry St. Leger, and Barry Kirk Jackman.
