Shudokan Judo Club
Yellow Springs, Ohio

The Shudokan Judo Club meets every Monday & Wednesday 7 to 8:30 PM at the Bryan Community Center, 100 Dayton St.  Yellow Springs, Ohio.

For further information call James Linnane at 937-342-0456.













Sensei Linnane began Judo in 1950 at the Springfield, Ohio YMCA.  National Judo was in its infancy and competent instructors were rare.  The first sign of organized Judo Tournaments in Ohio were Judo tournaments run at Ohio State Univ. by Don Speakman starting in1956.

Sensei Linnane is a registered member of USA JUDO, the National governing body for Judo in the USA.  He was promoted to Black Belt in Judo in 1962 and is a Black Belt in the Shingitai Jujitsu. 

He has played in several National Championships along with many local and regional tournaments, the 1964 Olympic Trials in New York; many Kata tournaments, and also referees many tournaments.  In 1980, the Springfield YMCA closed and the Judo team subsequently moved to Yellow Springs, Ohio. 

A few of the more outstanding players to emerge from our team were Stan Conner, Tim & Tom Jones, Mike Lancaster and Rhonda Morrell-Pruitt. 

The Shudokan Judo Club meets every Monday & Wednesday 7 to 8:30 PM at the Bryan Community Center, 100 Dayton St.  Yellow Springs, Oh.  We conduct classes in the gymnasium for ages 14 and up. 

For further information call James Linnane at 937-342-0456.
