|Amber was quite a natural!|
It's not often a supermodel visits your judo club but Amber Chia dropped by KL Judo earlier this year to give judo a try. She was a real good sport about it and did all the exercises and drills just like the other members of the club. At the end of the session she even took part in some sparring.
The feedback she gave us was really instructive. She liked the training because it really made her sweat. She found the session intense but satisfying. Overall, she felt it was a really good workout.
When I was brainstorming with Wenisa about designing a fitness program based on judo, one approach I took was to think: What kind of program would someone like Amber enjoy?
Ultimately, what non-competitive judokas want out of a judo session is a good workout. And with that in mind we came up with Judo Fitness which is basically judo without the brutality. To borrow a phrase from Steve Jobs, it's judo "for the rest of us".
