Judoka of the Month : Chuck - January 2012 Check out our facebook page here!
January’s Judoka of the month is Chuck Laube. Chuck has proven himself on the mat in randori as well as in tournaments. Everyone who has fought Chuck in practice has been thrown for ippon including myself. He has held the state championship in his weight class for Pennsylvania, Maryland and Virginia all at the same time. He has also placed second in the Liberty Bell Tournament, one of the toughest and most prestigious contests in the nation.
More importantly than his competition success is the attitude that Chuck brings to the dojo. He thrives on working with people before and after practice and is largely responsible for our judoka improving at the pace that they do. Recently when we moved to our new dojo most of the members of our club saw the “finished product” on the night when we put the mat down. Prior to that evening Chuck donated nearly one hundred hours of his time in the previous three weeks doing carpentry work to get the dojo in shape.
Chuck travels to train with other clubs to bring different skills and techniques back to our club, he will take over and run practice when the black belts in the club are tied up with work or a business or personal obligation and the senseis can rest assured that the club is in good hands.
So thank you Chuck for being such a great help in the club your willingness to help others and your attitude to do whatever it takes has earned you the Judoka of the Month Award for January 2012.
