USAFA Judo Clinic With Olympian Marti Malloy
This afternoon, USAFA hosted Olympian Marti Malloy for a Judo Clinic and we were there to catch a glimpse of the event!
Below is just a few of the many achievements Marti Malloy has accomplished during her career;
2017 Cancun Grand Prix Gold Medalist
2016 Olympic Team Member
2014 Pam Am Championship Gold Medalist
2013 World Championship Silver Medalist
2013 Miami Grand Prix Gold Medalist
2013 Tokyo Grand Slam Silver Medalist
2012 Olympic Bronze Medalist
This clinic was not only opened to Cadets at the Academy involved with Judo but any Cadets who wanted to attend. Local folks from as far north as Denver also came out to participate in today's Judo Clinic.
Towards the beginning of the clinic, they did a few relay race games to warm everyone up and get them moving before the real fun began. We have some clips below of their games.
The main focus of the event was the "Arm Bar" move, but Marti Malloy also went over some other moves with the group.
The clip below is a snapshot of the skill that Olympian Marti Malloy has. The video is of Malloy vs Quintavalle in the Women's 57KG Judo Bronze Medal Bout from the 2012 Olympics in London.
