Sensei Alvin T. Reagan

Alvin T. Reagan studied judo and hapkido with Sensei Lee H. Park while at Southeast Missouri State University (1975-1976), and continued with Sensei Dennis Helm at Southern Illinois University (1977-1978), achieving the rank of Nikyu. In pursuing a career, he moved to areas that did not have a judo dojo nearby.

In 1997, he resumed his study with the Sensei Jack Farrell of the Stockton judo club, along with his oldest son, and, in January 2001, was awarded Shodan. While with the Stockton Judo Club, he served as assistant instructor and coach, completing a refereeing clinic (February 2001) and a D level coaching program (September 2002) offered through the Daihaegen Yudanshakai.
He was promoted to Nidan in March 2004 and promoted to Sandan by Sensei Lopez in May of 2006.
