I had an extra-ordinary judo coach – the legendary, late Don Werner, Sensei of the Pinewood Judo Club in Wokingham, Berkshire.
Don himself never believed in luck but I count myself lucky to have walked into his Dojo, the Pinewood Judo Club when I was 8 years old.
Don saw in all his pupils some sort of champion. his belief made each of us believe in ourselves.
Don’s drills, training methods, and philosophy that form the core to all the technical resources you’ll find on this website.
If you want to know more about Don Werner please read Moderately Satisfied: Don Werner Our Sensei, a book I authored along with Pinewood club mate, Karen Roberts.
When I’m not creating judo resources, you’ll find me mountain biking, snowboarding or training to be a chef!
