Judoka of the Month : Neacy - July 2012 Check out our facebook page here!
This month the coaching staff of the Lancaster Judo Club has named Lianeace Acevedo as the Judoka of the Month. The reason for this may seem to be getting a little redundant but it shows the importance we put on the concept of “mutual benefit and welfare”. We recently had the privilege of having Eric Peel and his 3 year old daughter Addy join our dojo. Addy's first practice was a bit intimidating with a full dojo and a lot of adults going through a vigorous warm-up. Seeing how all this as Addy's first exposure to judo was a bit overwhelming “Neacy” as she is known in the club came to me and offered to take Addy under her wing and show her how to fall in a more gentle manner. Neacy has also has taken it upon herself to comfort and work with some of our junior students, her patients and kindness make her a perfect combination for working with small children. The club would like to thank Neacy for her dedication and help to the club.

I am about to turn 14 years old. I started judo about 5 years ago with my dad and brother. I originally startedjudo because my dad wanted me to learn self defense, because I was being bullied at school but eventually it, something fun along with baking. I hope to one day become a pastry chef and have my own business in Paris, France. I'm an orange belt soon to be green belt. My mom has a home daycare since 2005 and I like to help her with the kids. I also like to help the kids at judo because I have patience and I think if I can do it, and I like to think I've become pretty good at it, so I think I can help the little kids and they can become good at judo and have as much fun as I do doing it too.
