Our lead instructor is Sensei Kevin Costello, a sandan (third degree Judo black belt).
Kevin Costello has been training in Judo for over 25 years. He began his training in 1995, earning his first degree Judo black belt in 2003, second degree black belt in 2011, and third degree black belt in 2017. He competed and placed at the Local, State Senior, National Masters, and International Masters Levels. Kevin received his coaching certification through USA Judo in 2010 and is currently certified at the National Level by USA Judo.
Kevin is a well-rounded martial artist whose martial arts journey started ten plus years before he found Judo. In addition to holding a third degree black belt in Judo, Kevin also holds black belts in Kempo, Karate, and USJA Ju-Jitsu.
Kevin has a unique ability to connect with his students–fostering confidence, honing technique, and building the mental toughness necessary for competition, self-defense, and life.
