USA Judo Coaches Pass IJF Level 1 Instructor Course

Nov. 12, 2019, 1:03 p.m. (ET)

Luis Bonilla (MA) and Devin P. Cohen (NY) successfully completed the IJF Academy Level 1 Instructor course, in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.

In the IJF Level 1 Coaches Training, coaches’ skills are tested on all the Judo throws, pins, chokes and arm bars. It is physically demanding – practicing all the techniques but also having all the techniques done to you.

Congratulations Devin and Luis!

Starting in January 2022 it will be required to have a Level 1 IJF Certification to coach at an IJF event.
