2018 Sponsorship Opportunities!

On Oct 7, 2018, The Jason Morris Judo Center will host the 17th Annual Morris Cup. The tournament will be held at Burnt Hills – Ballston Lake High School in Burnt Hills, NY and expects participation from over 500 of the best competitors in the Northeast and Canada. Judo is the most widely practiced martial art in the world and is an official sport in the Summer Olympic Games. In its competitive form, it involves throws, pins, chokes and arm locks, but no kicking and punching. Judo participants develop excellent physical skills and high levels of fitness, together with strong discipline and a respect for their opponents. Interest in Judo in our area is being developed and nurtured by Glenville native, Jason Morris, who began his career in the sport at the age of eight at the Parkside YMCA. Years of national and international training and competition led him to a 1992 Olympic Silver Medal. Jason is committed to raising the next generation of champions, as well as introducing his sport and its benefits to newcomers.

The Morris Cup is organized and run by Jason, his wife, Teri Takemori, and a staff of volunteers (including referees, timers and scorekeepers) and an industrious crew of dedicated parents, family and friends. The registration fee for this tournament is $70. Although this will cover part of the expenses involved in putting on an event of this magnitude, we always look forward to the help and support from people and businesses like you. Any money raised above our costs will go toward helping the JMJC members achieve their goals in the sport of judo.

Thank you in advance for your support,
