Article Added 12 years ago
Great News! Chris Jones, a blind and visually impaired Judo athlete from Cahill's Judo Academy just won the Gold Medal in the 100kg catagory at the US Brown Belt National Championsships at the City College of San Francisco. Chris defeated 4 competitors using only "left side" techniques against his opponents. Coach Willy Cahill decided that Chris was having problems with execution using his "right side" techniques so Cahill changed Chris to "left side" techniques. Chris won most of his matches with a left side Ippon Seoi Nage to gain the Gold Medal. CONGRATULATIONS Chris!
