Hello all,

Please share with your networks. Would be an interesting event and usuful too. One of the things you will learn is the art of falling, which has saved from plenty of potential injuries.

 Come “Try judo” with MWABA on March 22!
The event   will be at the College Park Community Center, from 12:00-4:00 PM.

 Online registration:


 **If you need transportation assistance from the metro to the community center, please contact us at mwaba.inc at gmail.com with "judo event in the subject line".

 This free “Try it” event is targeted at our local blind and low vision friends in the Washington Metropolitan DC area.  We extend a personal invitation to you to come, experience, discover and enjoy the sport of judo. We encourage character development, achieving personal goals, improving fitness, developing proficiency, promoting sportsmanship and enhancing physical training. Judo is an Olympic sport founded by Dr Jigoro Kano in 1882.  Judo, which is translated to “gentle way”, prescribes the principle of flexibility in the application of the techniques. This is the flexible or efficient use of balance, leverage and momentum in the performance of the techniques. Skill and timing are the essential ingredients for success in judo, rather than brute strength.

 For more information please see the attached flyer.

 Thank you,
Lori Pierce
