About Sensai Radu
Sensei Radu has been studying Judo from the age of 5. He shares, “My father took me to the one Dojo in town where I met my first Sensei, Reisfeld Nicolae. He was a very kind and powerful Sensei; he never raised his voice, but had a very commanding presence. From early on I understood how Judo could help develop a strong mind and body. I started competition at age 6 in the 26 kilo division. I competed up to the national level in Romania”
“When settled in the US, I began training again under Sensei Yoshinaga, who is an eight degree black belt, one of the most advance Judoka in the United States. Despite my experience, I was a white belt again. After years of intense training, I received my black belt under his instruction in 2015.”
“I enjoy teaching because it gives me the opportunity to spread Judo. It’s really great to be able to help people get in shape in a comprehensive way and strengthen their mind and spirit.”
“The merits of Judo are many: developing a good set of values, building self-discipline, inner power and strength, correct kinetics, self-defense and much more. Judo teaches many important life skills including how to deal with stress, conquer our anxieties and fears, and how to believe in oneself.”
Sensei Radu teaches Judo Tuesday and Thursday 5-6 pm for boys 6-13 years old.
