Project 2024 with Jimmy Pedro

The culmination of the CJBBA Chicago Open and Project 2024 weekend finally came to a close on February 29th with Jimmy Pedro leading a 2-day training camp for our Senior and Junior classes.   Jimmy led us through his gripping strategies, his turnovers, his tokui waza (taiotoshi), his "Split the leg" pass, his situational randoris and his visualization methods.  Over the course of the 2 days, there were probably 60 people on the mat and we enjoyed his insights into how he trained his athletes to win.

We look forward to seeing Jimmy Pedro in this neck of the woods soon.
