Man...I think they are sabotaging me...LOL.
I really should check these things ahead of time. But, to be honest, we get very few judo guys in the event. I will just have to bribe people to come :)

Out of curiosity are there any dedicated Sambo schools in North Jersey? I know of South Mountain Martial Arts, but the Sambo there is only 2x a week.
