College wrestlers with judo training? in College Wrestling Posted October 15, 2020 · Report reply 1 hour ago, Drake_Mallard said: Has to be the Japanese influence. I wonder how many of the men and women on the Japanese world teams have a base in judo.... probably a lot of cross over. It is. It's a state sport in Hawaii with the Hawaii HS Athletic Association. I can tell you that A LOT of the Japanese men and women have judo experience. When the Japanese wrestling federation first started the womens program, they recruited from the Womens Judo programs.
