A summer full of Judo with the American Judo System

Who’s ready for summer? The American Judo System is excited for a summer packed with Judo! The AJS team is here to bring you another monthly newsletter of all things Judo! 

Before we get started with what you can expect in June, we want to take a moment to congratulate all of the senior level judoka who competed at US Senior Nationals in Spokane, Washington! Also, remember to check out the new Newaza Encyclopedia that was released in May, the Cuban Roll! Reminder, if you are a USA Judo member, you can use the same email address associated with your USA Judo membership to create an account with the American Judo System, which will give you Single Sign On Access to all the available AJS Encyclopedias!

Now let’s dive into all things AJS in June!
