Hi! Thanks for visiting All About Judo. This is my first attempt at a blog so please bear with me. For my first past I just wanted to tell you about the site and myself.
I set out to create a site to provide a resource for judo which it will be but as I was working on the site the blog became a bigger part of the site than I had initially intended. My though is that under the My Experiences category I will talk about my experiences through judo. I would also like to have others blog about their experiences. Because I am a former Paralympian I thought I would create a Paralympic Judo category and ask other Paralympians and even Paralympic hopefuls to post in this section. I will ask them to post at least once but will hope some will blog regularly. Because I am still involved and travel with the Paralympic judo program many of my blogs posts will be about my travels with the team but I will also share some of my experiences from my past as well.
Ok, so a little about myself. My name is Scott Moore and I have had some amazing experiences through the sport of judo. I was introduced to judo in college in 1988. A friend and former wrestling teammate called me when I was a senior in high school and told me about his judo club at the University of Southwestern Louisiana (now University of Louisiana Lafayette). He told me it was a lot like wrestling and thought I would love it. I had hoped to walk-on to the Wrestling team at LSU but they canceled their wrestling program when I was a junior. I went to Lafayette to visit my friend and to see what judo was all about. When I got home I told my mother I wanted to go to USL and she said why. I told her because they have a judo club and when she asked, “What is judo?”, I said “I don’t know but it looks really cool. So, in the fall of 1988 I started college and Judo, and what a ride it has been. If you want to learn more about me you can check out my posts in the Scott’s Stories section of the site. The first one is named Welcome to All About Judo and starts as this one did but I have much more detail about my history in judo.
Thanks again for visiting the site. Please come back often. I am going to do my best to post at least once a week but if things come up thank I want to share I’ll go ahead and post when it comes up. I am also working on getting some other bloggers like 2012 Paralympian, Ron Hawthorne and 2012 Paralympic Bronze Medalist, Dartanyon Crockett, and others. If you are a judoka and would like to share your stores please fill out the form on the request a blog page.
