      Yosh Uchida

      Uchida graduated from San Jose State University in 1947 and has become an icon in both the San Jose and international judo communities for more than 60 years. After graduation, Uchida continued to coach at San Jose and organized the first Collegiate Judo National Championships in 1962 – two years before being named as the head coach of the first U.S. Olympic Judo Team in 1964. Most recently, Uchida was the president of USA Judo from 1996-2000 and remains the head coach of the USA Judo National Training Site at San Jose State University. In 1986, Uchida received one of the highest honors an individual can receive in Japan – the Order of the Sacred Treasure with Golden Rays by Emperor Hirohito of Japan.
