Clint Talley – Judo Instructor
- 1st Dan (Black Belt) Judo
Clint Talley began training in traditional Judo when he was 12 years old at Tim Joe’s School of Judo & Aikido in Amarillo, where he received his black belt at the age of 20. He stayed with the school for a little over ten years until he relocated in 2007 and was unable to continue training. In 2017, he found some freedom from work and renewed his studies of Judo under Chad Haas in Round Rock and began studying BJJ at Insight. Although Clint has never competed in Judo tournaments, he holds true to the founding principals of the sport: focused effort for maximum efficiency, and mutual welfare and benefit for all. Clint practices a form of recreational Judo as opposed to competition Judo.
