Sensei Clif Norgaard




Sensei Clif Norgaard

10th Dan, Judo, Aikido, and Ju-jitsu


Recognizing Dr. Clif Norgaard, Judan – a Great Sensei of Judo, Ju-Jitsu & Aikido…
For many years, Sensei Norgaard partnered with Karl Geis. Today at 90 years, in spite of fighting cancer, he is still teaching on the Tatami.. Sensei Norgaard began training in Judo & Ju-Jitsu in 1948 under such notable Sensei as Al Holtmann (USA), Henry Stone (USA), Vince Tamura (USA), Sumiyuki Kotani (Japan) & Karl Geis (USA). He holds the 10th Dan (Judan) in Judo, Ju-Jitsu & Aikido.

We will always remember Sensei Clif Norgaard as our honored Teacher who was always visiting with all of his martial and life experience, wisdom and humor.  If you had any need of any help he was always ready to be of assistance.  We will truly miss his Presence as he was always full of energy, insight and was willing to work through issues whether on the mat and any time you needed to delve into any real life circumstances that you needed to work through, business or personal, he would lead you in the right direction.

We will sorely miss him, we loved him and hold him in the highest of esteem for all of his abilities and accomplishments, Will Gable
