How long have you been doing judo and jiu-jitsu?

I have been doing martial arts since I was 5 1/2 years old.

What is your favorite move?

Tai OToshi

Tai OToshi translates to body drop in English.This is a standing technique in Judo. 

What is the most important lesson you have learned from martial arts?

Martial arts shouldn't hurt people. You use it to put people on the ground then walk away.

In self-defense situations sometimes it is necessary to use what you are learning in class. Colby has had an experience where he has had to defend himself and used what he had learned to put a bully in place without injuring this person. The bully never bothered him again!

What advice would you give to someone who is just starting martial arts?

Don't worry that you will fail your sensei's. 

Remember the senseis are always here to help and guide your martial arts journey and sometimes students put more pressure on themselves than their senseis do.
