I am a fully certified judo teacher and I have been given
judo clinics on a regular basis for the past 15 years. After
I retired from competition, my teaching & training has
intensified and in 2011 I became the national head coach for
the girls under 17 and under 20 years.
I have always been a judoka who analyses techniques,
opponents and possibilities, for the good of my own results.
Now that I no longer need to focus on my own
achievements, I can use my knowlegde of the sport to help
others. It is great to be able to help people improving
their game, at any level.
Each group and each individual deserves its own approach.
Safety and having fun come first! For a beginner it is a
surprising experience to put on a judo suit, step onto the
mat and feel what it is like to grab someone, to throw or
take someone in a holddown.
For advanced judokas it is interesting to learn the in-depth
details of professional judo. In 15 years of top judo I have
mastered a large arsenal of techniques. But sometimes small
adjustments can result in big improvements!
