Hi! Thanks for visiting All About Judo. This is my first attempt at a blog so please bear with me. 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. 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.
