Judo - Past Photos

Yes, I was a judo player back in the early '70's through the 80's. I competed with the Millersville State College (University), Pa. team and ran my own club in the late 70's. As you can see, I was a bit lighter, but very, very quick. I also had a full head of hair!

I often get a kick out of guys who make off the cuff threats not realizing my extensive background in judo. I had a fellow once say that some of his buddies were upset with me and "wanted to kick my butt." I explained to him that he best tell those "friends" of his that they may not fare too well. :-)

I tend to be low keyed and not a boisterous guy. I believe that may give them the impression that I'm a lover and not a fighter... Oh well!
