It’s been a long semester for SJSU Spartans, we’ve been training hard and studying even harder. Some of our judokas have also been getting ready for the Tokyo Grand Slam this weekend. We want to wish good luck to our current students L.A. Smith and Nate Keeve who will compete in the -100kg divisions. The last time we had a Spartan compete and medal at the Tokyo Grand Slam was in 2013 with Marti Malloy earning herself a silver medal.
Additionally, we have another fellow Spartan, Anne Suzuki, who will be traveling to Hong Kong this month to compete at the Asian Open at 48kg. Previously, she won gold at Oceania Open in November! Anne stated that she “hopes to do San Jose State justice at this tournament,”.
Let us all wish the best and safe travels for Anne, L.A., and Nate! Good Luck! Stay tuned for updates and results!
