MSGT. H.G. Robby Robinson
In honor of Grandmaster Harold Gilbert “Robby” Robinson’s (Director and Founder of the International Armed Services Judo & Jujitsu Academy) eightieth birthday and his sixty-sixth year as an outstanding advocate of the development of martial arts world-wide and through the generosity of Grandmaster Robinson, we have selected 100 honorees for the auspicious International Armed Services Judo & Jujitsu Academy (IASJJA) Outstanding Meritorious Commemoration Service Award. These honors were bestowed and presented beginning in the spring of 2015.
This award was intended to recognize teachers and practitioners who epitomize that degree of integrity and dedication required to make their mark in the preservation of traditional martial arts. Honorees shall have displayed outstanding character and noteworthy citizenship regardless of disability, nationality, ethnicity, religion, or national origin. This includes those individuals who have taken up the difficult task to train our military personnel, their family members, law-enforcement officers, first responders, and members of our specialized federal and military special missions delegated with the safeguarding of the United States of America and its allies. Competence in subject matter, mastery and application of the methods and techniques of excellence in instruction, coaching, innovation, representation, both nationally and internationally, carries the same weight as a small hometown dojo in rural America. Anytime - Any Place!
This auspicious award ensemble consists of a commemorative double-sided 2-inch gold coin, numbered consecutively and presented in an attractive presentation box and an 11x14-inch high-quality digitally imprinted certificate, featuring a photo of the recipient. Each certificate features a citation uniquely written for that particular honoree. Certificates shall be protected and enclosed within an individual folder, adorned with the newly revised IASJJA logo. Unless delivered in person, award packages shall be mailed through the USPS to the individual or organization that would present the award. Sadly, several of these awards are posthumous and as such, will be mailed to their family or designated representative.
Thank you all for your dedication and sacrifice towards the growth and sustainment of martial arts and the preservation of freedom.
