Fall Clinic

This year our theme is Lokahi, Hawaiian for Harmony and Unity.

We will have over 20 National and International Instructors this year from a variety of styles. Our hope is that all represented will find a relationship between what each of us does. This may give each of us a different perspective on how and what to bring back into our art form we each study.

At our clinic this year we will have 4 mat areas, an outside training area, and 2 healing art class rooms. Massage treatments will be available on site for $80 a session

We will have 8 American Judo and Jujitsu Federation Professors at this year’s event:

  • Professor John Congistre
  • Professor Tom Hill
  • Professor Robert Hodgkin
  • Professor Tom Ryan
  • Professor Kevin Colton
  • Professor Marty Brzykcy
  • Professor Troy Shehorn

In addition, Guro Abundio Baet, Joshua White Sensei, Matsushita Sensei, Tony Zimkowski Sensei, Tom Reiff Sensei, Gerard Trawinski Sensei, Shihan Gary Shull (pending), Richard Cooper Sensei, Aaron Blackwell Sensei, Guro Rick White, Doug Musser Sensei, Chuck Harris Sensei, Renshi John Penn, Mike Wheeler Sensei, Filiberto Gutierrez Sensei, Thabiti Sabahive Sensei, Chuck Segard Sensei and more!

If you have Kendo equipment, bring it.  Matsushita Sensei will be doing Kendo classes this year as well.

We will also be having Black Belt examinations, Module 1 and 2 DZRSI examinations as well as a lot of great classes.


We are planning a get together each night in the hotel’s  “hospitality suite” for fellowship. Snacks and munchies will be provided,  but BYOB if you plan to have a few.  We might even have some good ole South Carolina shine to share!!.


Classes will take place at Palmetto Jujitsu Academy, just one exit from the hotel.
