FLASH - Jason Gabrielson wins 2003 FIAS World Cup 66kg class

I have been involved coaching and competing in Sombo since 1968 and in Judo since 1966. Those I have trained have excelled in open competition regardless of where they compete. I'm currently retired as a coach and have little involvement with the competitive side. However, with my son Jason's decision to again compete one final time at the 2003 World Cup, I came out of retirement and helped coach the US Team to a 2nd place finish. I started this site in 1993 and created the Sombo page in 1995 simply because I enjoy the sport and wanted to see it go further.
