Don Werner coached at the Pinewood Judo Club in Berkshire for fifty-five years during which time he produced four world champions, an olympic silver medallist and 296 British Champions. But his real legacy lives on in all those he taught.
This is a page dedicated to Don, with excerpts from the book “Moderately Satisfied: Don Werner Our Sensei” – a biography written by two of his pupils Nicola Fairbrother and Karen Roberts. It is the story of one man, a Sensei who made thousands of lives brighter, bigger and better told through the eyes of two of his pupils. Don’s real legacy lives on in all those he taught.
