The Passing of Sam Hashimoto

It is with great sadness that we inform the judo community that Sam Hashimoto passed away on the morning of August 13th after a battle with cancer. Sam was an instructor at Northglenn Judo Club, coached many of the club's national champions, and was a member of the club's coaching staff when it was awarded developmental coaching program of the year by the USA Judo in 2002. Sam was past President of Colorado Judo League, and chaired the USA Judo Coach Commission.

Colorado Judo League expresses its sincere condolences to Sam's family.
