This past Sunday, Oct. 21st, Smash Gyms Kids Martial Arts program student, Aaron Jen, competed for the first time in judo at the 2012 Albany Judo Invitational. Different from Brazilian Jiu-jitsu where the emphasis is on the ground, one of the main goals in order to win in judo competition is to throw your opponents flat on their back. He had several tough matches and ended up placing 1st in his division. Big congratulations to Aaron!
Here are some quick highlights of Aaron in action!
