I am a fully certified judo teacher and I have been given judo clinics on a regular basis for the past 15 years. After I retired from competition, my teaching & training has intensified and in 2011 I became the national head coach for the girls under 17 and under 20 years.

I have always been a judoka who analyses techniques, opponents and possibilities, for the good of my own results. Now that I no longer need to focus on my own achievements, I can use my knowlegde of the sport to help others. It is great to be able to help people improving their game, at any level.

Each group and each individual deserves its own approach. Safety and having fun come first! For a beginner it is a surprising experience to put on a judo suit, step onto the mat and feel what it is like to grab someone, to throw or take someone in a holddown.

For advanced judokas it is interesting to learn the in-depth details of professional judo. In 15 years of top judo I have mastered a large arsenal of techniques. But sometimes small adjustments can result in big improvements!
