My life changed on 1.4.2008 when I met Sensei Suresh Kanojia and was motivated by him that a 62 year old person like me who has never been interested in sports in his life can be trained to perform martial arts and I joined United Judo Academy under his aegis.
I never looked back since then and as I kept getting yellow, orange, green, blue & brown belts in succession, it started getting more and more interesting.
I realised the genius of Dr. Jigoro Kano- founder of this great and very scientific sport JUDO.
Trust me, nothing is impossible and age is only a number. No, I am not retired. I am still actively running my chemical manufacturing business at Vasai 40+ km from Andheri and it is 2-3 hours of judo session in the evening @ UJA that helped me to relax physically and mentally and maintain & upgrade my fitness level and achieve my black-belt at the of 66 and still carrying on as of date when I am nearing 70 and preparing for 2nd degree black-belt exam besides training judokas @ UJA.
All this has been made possible by our Sensei Suresh Kanojia, 4th degree black-belt, is a thorough master of this amazing Olympic sport is a great motivator and ensures proper training for all judokas whether 3 or 70 year old.
Additionally, our Dojos from Andheri to Bhayander are well equipped with modern amenities for fitness besides hygienic judo mats and are well lighted and air-conditioned studios for thorough training have been contributory factors.
