(Colorado Springs, Colo.) – USA Judo is partnering with three-time Grand Prix medalist Megumi Ishikawa (JPN) to lead a series of regional judo clinics throughout the United States this year.

The 2013 Asian Champion in the 57kg division, Ishikawa is now an instructor at Tohkon Judo Academy in Chicago.

Ishikawa, along with Olympians Marti Malloy and Israel Hernandez, led the USA Judo Winter Training Camp in Plano, Texas in December and conducted a clinic at USA Stars in Oklahoma City last month.

Additional clinics will be announced in the coming months in cities throughout the United States.
