The Nakano Program

A solution to your problem

I Bring Multiple Decades of Judo Experience to Help My Students

I live and breathe Judo. I spent 23 years of my Judo journey as a competitor, and over 10 years dedicated to coaching. I have coached the Canadian national team and San Jose State University Judo team. I have coached junior level students up to international elite competitors. I will leverage my experience as both a competitor and coach to help my students succeed in their goals.


I realized that judo instruction could be improved when I started coaching abroad. I thought that the basics were common sense, yet there were many athletes who were not on the same page as me in terms of the basics. Without the basics, you cannot advance and become a proficient judoka. Along with proficiency, not understanding the basics can prevent you from creating your own style of judo. Learning the fundamentals is key to making it to the next level.

This is a life journey, a journey worth taking. I am excited to guide you on that journey.

While many techniques are accessible by viewing YouTube content, the problem is that you will not see the underlying fundamentals that make the techniques effective. A qualified instructors provides the needed insights into the fundamentals.

Techniques need to be broken down into individual steps. Without the fundamentals, it becomes easy to develop bad habits and practices, which stunt your growth in the long-run.

“Nakano-sensei learned really early traditional style of judo. He brings us back to basics and tweaks things so it is a little more correct. He gives a lot of one-on-one attention, so if you have a question he knows the answer. He’s gonna help you and every time he sees you make the same mistake, he will fix it and remind you.”
