Sam, who has been participating in PAL judo for 8 years, is going to the US Judo Federation/US Judo Association First Annual Junior Judo Nationals in Irvine over the fourth of July weekend. Sam started judo with coach Bill Wong at PAL when he was 10 years old and is currently a student at Ruth Asawa School of the Arts High School.
The PAL judo program is held at the Mission Recreation Center, 745 Treat Street, from 4:30 to 6:30 Monday, Wednesday, and Fridays. The program is on summer break right now, but will resume on August 16th.
Best of luck Sam!
