SHINGITAI ATHLETES WIN IN PAN AMERICAN JUDO UNION CHAMPIONSHIPS
Chris Heckadon, Derrick Darling and Andre Coleman
(along with non-SJA member Chris Weerts)
represented the USA at the Pan American Judo Union Masters' Championships
Dec. 9, 2011 in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.
Steve Scott went along as the team's coach.
All four athletes won gold medals in their respective age/weight categories
and the USA Team placed second overall in the team standings.
Noteworthy are the performances of Chris Heckadon who won the 36-40 age group in the 160 pound class
Derrick Darling who won the 30-35 age group, also in the 160 pound class.
Chris hammered his opposition, winning his 3 matches in convincing style
and pinning his opponent in the championship match.
Derrick Darling's opponent from the Dominican Republic
in the final did not tap out in time from Derrick's juji gatame,
and the arm was either broken or badly dislocated.
We don't want anyone injured, but that was one mean juji gatame.
Shingitai athletes compete in a variety of combat sports,
from judo to various forms of submission grappling, BJJ and MMA,
continually proving that the Shingitai approach to training is successful.

Shingitai Jujitsu athletes represented the USA at the 2011 WOMAA World Martial Arts Games in Cardiff, Wales this past August
The World Organization of Martial Arts Athletes (WOMAA) holds a martial arts festival and games each year, usually in Europe.
This past year, athletes representing 17 or 18 countries competed.
Competition is in various styles of karate, kung fu, kickboxing and other striking styles, including sparring and kata.
The WOMAA Games also featured grappling and sport jujitsu.
This past year, they also included a freestyle judo tournament as well.
Our SJA athletes really represent SHINGITAI and themselves by winning quite a few medals in a lot of different disciplines
Our USA Shingitai Team dominated the gi and no gi grappling, sport jujitsu and MMA categories,
as well as the freestyle judo tournament.
Derrick Darling and Steve Scott were inducted into the WOMAA Hall of Fame for 2011.
The WOMAA graplling rules are really pretty good and allow for both standing and groundfighting situations. Also, the sport jujitsu that is done in WOMAA is really something that a lot of Shingitai people should look into. It's a lot of fun and includes striking, kicking, throws and groundfighting...something that we do a lot in Shingitai!
We will be hosting some WOMAA/SJA tournaments in the Kansas City area in 2012, so if anyone is interested in getting involved, please contact John Saylor.
We would like to have more Shingitai athletes compete in the WOMAA Games,
including some of the striking, kickboxing and karate events (in both sparring and kata)
as well as more athletes in the grappling categories.
John Saylor teamed up with Louie Simmons of Westside Barbell To Reveal the Truth About What ItTruly Takes To Create Champions.
John lectured on the effects of General Physical Preparedness (G.P.P.)
and the development of Sports Specific Preparedness (S.S.P.)
He addressed conditioning and restoration.
How to use wave periodization according to heart rate, and your level of physical preparedness.
John discussed the four periods of training,
from accumulation, intensification, transformation, and delayed transformation leading in competition.

Just a note to announce a unique training session with Steve Scott and myself (John Saylor), Sean Daugherty and Michael Hallman.
It all started when my good friend Steve Scott called and asked if he and a handful of his students could come out to
The Barn of Truth for a training session.
Several of his guys had just won gold medals in the jujitsu portion of the World Martial Arts Championships in Killarney, Ireland and they were fired up to train.
After Steve and I kicked the idea for a training camp around for awhile we decided it would be a good idea to open it to the entire Shingitai family.
Steve and his guys will be making the 15 hour road trip to the Barn on Wednesday September 22, 2010. Training will start Thursday September 23rd and will go through 4 pm on Saturday September 25th. Thursday will be a little less formal and will include workouts in the weight room and on the mat, followed by instruction. Saturday’s session will run from 10 am through 4 pm and will be a seminar. Even more important than the knowledge and skills you will learn are the new friendships you will develop. There will be a campfire and dinner after Saturday’s seminar. …. Don’t Miss out!
