Reminder – Katelyn Bouyssou Clinic and Scholarships – June 20 – Avon OH

June 11, 2015

20100822_Singapore_BOUYSSOU, Katelyn (USA) (1)Hello All

Konan and USJF are helping put on another great clinic with Katelyn Bouyssou on June 20th at ChuToBu/Brasa, Avon OH.

Click here for the full flier and registration package.

Once again we have some junior competitor scholarships available. We would like to have each Konan Club nominate junior competitors with current USJF membership who will be attending the clinic for the scholarships. Please nominate up to three students from your Dojo in order of priority. We have 9 spots available and we will be assigning them by Dojo, and if all the spots are not filled on the first round we will go back and look at the next set of kids.

To nominate a student please email me back with

-Your Name and Dojo
-Your students name and nomination order (Up to 3)
-Your Students USJF numbers

These scholarships are going to be on a first come first serve basis so please get back to me ASAP.

This clinic is a good opportunity to learn from a great competitor. Katelyn is only 48K so this is an opportunity for a lot of our juniors to experience high level judo from someone their size.

If you have any questions please feel free to email me, and I have included some links below for you to check out.
