Clint Laplant - Judo
Clint LaPlant started martial arts training in 1972 at the age of 10. In the late 70s and early 80s, Clint participated in what was called free style, or combined systems fighting, a precursor to today’s MMA (mixed martial arts). This combined systems fighting included elements from tae kwon do, karate, kung fu, wrestling, boxing, and gymnastics. In the year 2000, Clint started formal training with Grandmaster Sid Kelly, 8th Dan Judo, 6th Dan Jujutsu. Sid remains a mentor and inspiration as Clint builds the sport of Judo into each lesson.
