Judoka of the Month : Chris - May 2012 Check out our facebook page here!
Chris came to us with a wrestling background some Judo experience and most importantly a great attitude and incredible work ethic. He took it upon himself to create the monthly judoka of the month awards for his fellow students. He is always at practice and is willing to work with new people and help them develop their skills. I also respect his dedication to his daughter he often shares one of the funny things that babies do with us. It takes me back twenty years to the time when my daughter was a toddler and I would go to work with my "Guess what my little girl did stories". Congratulations on earning this award you deserve it. We could use two dozen more like you.

I started judo in January 07 after the passing of my late fiancée, Monique, who had cystic fibrosis as a way of dealing with the tough times. I coached wrestling for the Manheim Mat Club for 5 years. I live in Manheim with my wife and daughter. I am an avid Hershey Bears fan and attend all of their home games. As a hobby, i build halloween props. I do judo because most importantly I love doing it and for the friendships that are made at the club.
