What can I do to continue to evolve or advance in Judo? You can go through the various certification programs for Coaching, Refereeing, and Kata. Become certified instructors for those programs and hold clinics in your region. If possible, travel to the various camps and assist with teaching the classes. The National Committees are constantly looking for “active” volunteers. There is so much work to be done and most of it can be done right in your dojo or home. Get involved! Get your students involved!
