Lorenzo Menzel

Judo/ JuiJitsu Sensei

Lorenzo, a 4th degree black belt in Judo with 35+ years of experience, has studied Judo on three continents starting at the age of ten in Frankfurt/Main (in Germany) and extensively in the Los Angeles area. Lorenzo has competed in tournaments around the world since he was 14, including tournaments in Germany, in the US, and in Japan. Sensei Lorenzo draws from a depth of knowledge in both European and Japanese approaches to teaching Judo. His classes are dynamic, safe, and fun for beginners to advanced, ages 4 to 65+. He brings a wealth of skill-building games and drills to the mat wherever he teaches. In addition to teaching Judo for recreation and competition at several clubs throughout Florida and California, Lorenzo is an International-level Technical Official, a Regional Referee, a Judo kata instructor, a National Coach, and an assistant tournament coordinator. Off the mat, Sensei Lorenzo puts the skills he learned in judo to work as a PhD in Comparative Immunology. He also restores, repairs, and maintains old German air-cooled cars.
