Dear Nanka Members,

It is our pleasure to announce that this past weekend the Unites States Judo Federation (USJF) has inducted Jerry Hays into the U.S. Lifetime Achievement Award Class of 2021. This induction recognizes Jerry for all the significant contributions he has made to judo.

Jerry’s judo biography along with some photographic records will shortly be made available on the USJF website. As many of you know, Jerry has been a stalwart for Nanka and our events for as long as most of us can remember. Nanka congratulates Jerry for this fantastic award, which is truly well deserved.

Keith Chu,

Nanka Judo Yudanshakai, President
