Chris Hartman earned a Bronze medal at the 2016 US Judo Open held in Orlando, Florida.  According to Chris, he said,  "I was very surprised at how big this tournament was. I was also very surprised and humbled at the high level skill of the competitors.  Most were folks I have not seen before competing at the USJF/USJA Nationals or Presidents Cup tournaments.  I came back with a renewed purpose to train harder..."  Chris has been successfully busy having tied for Bronze at the 2016 Russian Open Masters in the M3-81kg division, Silver at the 2016 Senior Nationals, also Silver in the 2015 and 2014 US President’s Club Championships, and is currently ranked #1 in the US in the 81kg M5 division (Masters 50-54 years old). Congratulation to Chris for another outstanding performance, his commitment to train harder to improve his judo, and continue to earn the results and recognition he deserves for his effort.
