Sensei Chuck Jefferson started a new podcast, ” Judocast” !!
“I hope can be an inspiration for all judokas. The podcast is not about me or my club, rather a platform to share inspirational judo stories. I hope all the Judo clubs could share the podcast with their members. Sharing the great stories of our community will help inspire people to make Judo a bigger part of their lives. In times like this, we can use this type of platform to give our members a connection to Judo. You can find the podcast on all the major podcast platforms and of course it is free for everyone! ” – Chuck Jefferson
