Every kid likes to go to a camp during their summer break. However the summer camp that Jonathon Taylor is going to is unlike many others. Taylor will be going to a national training center for judo in Schenectady, NY run by four-time Olympian Jason Morris.

“This is arguably one of the toughest judo clubs in the country,” said Brian Germain, Taylor’s coach at Summerlin Judo. “Jason Morris is the real deal. He took second in the ’92 Olympics and third in the ’93 World Championships. I trained with Jason back in the day during training camps and he was always a tough competitor. When he retired from competition he began focusing on coaching and has produced numerous junior and senior national champions throughout the years as well as Kyle Vashkalut, a 2012 Olympian. USA Judo has also designated his dojo as one of four national training centers. This is a huge opportunity for Jonathon to train there.”
