Teacher Recertification Program

Welcome Judo Professional,

Teaching 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 teachers/instructors to meet these demands.

We have augmented the teacher-recertification process to require the candidate to complete Online course work in a more targeted professional manner.  You will find the topics and coursework for recertification interesting, topical, and immediately applicable.

We know the importance of judo information in an ever changing environment and applaud your efforts to accommodate our future judoka's.

On behalf of the USJF Teachers Institute Committee we wish to thank you for your commitment.
