The Informed Coach

Welcome to USJF Coach Re - Certification,

Coaching standards, certifications, and accountability have been buzzwords among policymakers for all the National Judo organizations for much of the past decade. Now, through the USJF Teachers Institute, we are attempting to improve the skills and knowledge of our current coach/teachers/instructors to meet these demands.
