On July 30, 2014 Taylor returned with his students from the Hawaii Judo Academy.
(In 2010 Taylor founded the Hawaii Judo Academy to inspire students to be the “best they can be”.)
Air Central sponsored Hawaii Judo Academy’s competition team on their journey to the 2014 Junior Nationals.......
Many of the students expressed how Judo has helped them to develop perseverance, a strong mind, discipline, and a good attitude. These skills will help them to succeed as adults.
