Grand Master Poter Passing

We are sad to report the death of  O-Sensei, Philip S.Porter, who passed away on August 7th, 2011.

O-Sensei Porter is considered by many "The Father of American Judo". O-Sensei founded the USMA, helped found the USJA, served as a Chairman of the AAU Judo Committe, Chairman of the U.S. Olympic Judo Committee, Secretary General of the Pan American Judo Union, and produced more than 1,000 national and international medalists in Judo over the past 50 years, 500 of them during the eight years he coached the National Judo Team.

Phil Porter graduated from the United States Military Academy at West Point in 1948, and served in the U.S. Army and Air Force for 25 years, retiring as a Major in 1967.

Phil will be greatly missed by his family and friends, and his legacy to the American Martial Arts will never disappear.
