Keith Morgan (Canada)
3x Olympian

I have worked with Jason Morris and Teri Takemori for many years, and I believe they have one of the most effective approaches to the development of International Judo in North America today. They allow an athlete to attain a level of technical mastery and tactical approaches to fighting like no other program I have seen. This combination has guided much of my judo career and allowed me to get where I am today. I think that Jason's program can help any Judo player become even better and I would recommend it for anybody who wants to become the best in the world.

Maureen & Joe Liggett
Parents of Jeremy Liggett (blue)

Jeremy has always had the self motivation and desire to be a great judo player.He is so fortunate to have an Olympic athlete in our hometown and a great club to train with to reach his goals. The vast array of athletes in the club or at a training camp continue to broaden Jeremy's relationships and experiences. Our son at 15 has had some wonderful opportunities to travel within and outside the United States.

These experiences have enriched his personal knowledge and given Jeremy experiences other people never have the chance to experience.With the careful guidance of Jason and Teri and consideration for our "pocketbook" his tournaments and travel are carefully selected.We feel Jeremy has wonderful role models in Jason and Teri to help through these tough teenage years, something every parent hopes to have for their child. His focus on training, school and outside interests has only been enhanced by their dedication to their club's program

Jason Morris and Teri Takemori run one of the best judo programs in North America for developing elite High Performance athletes. Jason Morris himself was one of the best athletes in the history of North American Judo. Jason combined incredible technical abilities with tactical skills that took him to 4 Olympic Teams, a World Medal and Olympic Medal. Jason Morris has also had an impact on Canadian athletes when training in Montreal, he always trying to improve on everyone's skill level knowing that the better his training partners became the better he would become.

Jason unknowningly was a coach before he became a coach and his crucial words of advise helped me capture the 1995 Pan-Am Games in Argentina. Jason has also worked closely with Canadian athletes such as Nicolas Gill and Keith Morgan providing them with tactical and technical advice that can be provided by few others in North America. Jason Morris is and will be one of the leading forces in the development of high performance judo in North America for the next 20 to 30 years. Jason Morris has a simple goal and that is to produce world class athletes that can take World and Olympic medals. At the same time his coaching team understand the importance of developing a well balanced person that is excelling both on the mat and in school and in life.
