Yusef Houssni - 2018 USA Judo Brown Belt National Champion

Congratulations to Yusef Houssni for winning the USA Judo Senior Men's Brown Belt - 60Kg division in Irving, TX, on Sunday, May 13.  Although he has won in prior tournaments, he is only 15, and this is the first of, presumably, many senior national tournaments in which he will be standing on the top of the podium.

The Sensei's and his training partners and teammates at Southwest Judo Academy (SWJA) Mesa, are proud to have Yusef represent himself in this achievement, and also our dojo.  Yusef is the son of Traci and Yahya (John) Houssni, one of the partners and SWJA Sensei's, and a freshman at Perry High School in Gilbert, AZ.
