Bob Spraley Loses Battle with Cancer

Notice to All Judo Friends - 

   Bob Spraley (Shichidan) Passes

Note from Mark Hunter:

Ohio lost a Great Judo Leader Friday.  Hope everyone takes out time to remember Bob Spraley.  He ran one of the largest Judo Programs in the Dayton/ Tipp City area.  We will miss him.  Rest in Peace Bob.


Commentary by Russ Scherer:

This Friday we lost a judo coach, instructor, player, innovator and friend.  Bob Spraley lost his battle with cancer after a long fight.  I first met Bob at the Kittyhawk Judo Club during the 1970's.  He has been an instructor at several judo clubs in the Dayton area including at a minimum: the Darke County YMCA J.C., the Piqua YMCA J.C., the Sinclair College J.C. and the Epizoundes J.C. with John Powell.  Bob, a 7th Degree Black Belt in Judo, is also known around the country for his establishment of Juido, a physical training program for adults, which is based on Judo principles.

Our thoughts and prayers go to the Spraley family. Additional information follows:
