 A reaction to your status in facebook:

To this Muntinlupa/DLSU judoka who is very bitter in his life. FYI, I was sensei for 2 years and one of the pillars of Muntinlupa Judo Club in early 90's. I discovered your seniors namely, Darwin Nacida, Romel Vidor and Karen Ann Solomon (2005 SEAG gold). Ako ung teacher ni Karen ng basic ogoshi, why dont you ask her. Also, I was a UAAP UE women's judo coach in 2000. Siguro, kung ako ang nagturo ......sa yo ng judo, baka naging magaling ka, maybe better ang record mo nung 2009 Laos SEAG, no win ka, but bronze medal, diba? Pero alam mo, aside from 1993 SEAG gold ko, nung 1991 SEAG ko, bronze din ako, pero 2 wins, 2 losses. Round robin kami ng 5 countries. At least merong wins, mas ok yung record na un diba? Have a healthy mind, para healthy rin magisip. Umiwas sa bad influences. Para maging better ang karma mo. Dapat matuwa ka dahil nanalo ang PHI Judo team. tsk tsk tsk.....too bad of you.

Let's take a look at your status inch by inch. [After the jump]

1. To this Muntinlupa/DLSU judoka who is very bitter in his life
Define bitter please.
2. FYI, I was sensei for 2 years and one of the pillars of Muntinlupa Judo Club in early 90's
Sensei for 2 years? The Muntinlupa Judo Club will celebrate it's 20th anniversary next year so I don't see the significance of your 2 years as a sensei to what the club is now. The true pillars of our club are still here, through thick and thin. Oh and by the way, and in case you didn't know, you have been disowned by the Muntinlupa Judo Club for as long as I can remember.
3. I discovered your seniors namely, Darwin Nacida, Romel Vidor and Karen Ann Solomon (2005 SEAG gold). Ako ung teacher ni Karen ng basic ogoshi, why dont you ask her.
Sure, you discovered those Judokas, let's give you that. You simply FOUND them. Maybe we can ask these said Judokas, as to who actually TRAINED and DEVELOPED them. Were you there when mentioned Judokas were in need? Let's not even go to that event where you cheered for the opponent of Karen Solomon.
4. Siguro, kung ako ang nagturo ......sa yo ng judo, baka naging magaling ka
Can you please name at least THREE Judokas who made a NAME in the local scene of Judo because of you?
5. Pero alam mo, aside from 1993 SEAG gold ko, nung 1991 SEAG ko, bronze din ako, pero 2 wins, 2 losses. Round robin kami ng 5 countries. At least merong wins, mas ok yung record na un diba?
What's good about a bronze medal? It's the second loser, the first is the silver medal. Let's not brag about mediocre accomplishments. Oh, let's not call anything mediocre an accomplishment.
6. Dapat matuwa ka dahil nanalo ang PHI Judo team. tsk tsk tsk.....too bad of you.

We're proud that Ms. NANCY QUILLOTES won the GOLD medal, the ONLY GOLD medal of team Philippines in this SEAG. But is this the best the Philippines can offer? Hell no! We're good at this sport and any true Pinoy Judoka would know why we're still behind despite our skills and talent, let's save that for another day. Also, we are not one bit disappointed with Mr. JOHN BAYLON, because winning the GOLD for 9 consecutive years is one hell of a record to beat. He didn't have to prove anything more. For the rest, we are PROUD that they trained and fought hard to bag that gold, or silver, or bronze. We're VERY proud.

To you Ms. Loreta, who is bitter now? Who had to parade her not so impressive judo history for all the world to see and judge just so she can prove a moot point? I was taught by my coaches, who are also my parents, that you don't make excuses when you lose. You have all the reasons to win so if you must and if you did lose, at least do it with grace and dignity. 

If you really are or were a COACH, TRAINER, or MENTOR, you don't brag about your own accomplishments, other people will do that for you. And you don't fret about your own accomplishments, you worry about your players' accomplishments. 

I am a Muntinlupa and DLSU Judoka, by blood and by affinity. Let me tell you what kind of team we had and have:

1. You're more than a family.
2. You stand by each other.
3. You teach each other that WINNING isn't everything but how you played the game.
4. You are fellow JUDOKAS in and out of the mats.

I'm not sure who you're talking about in your status and I don't have any personal conflict or issue with you Ms. Loreta, but the first few words are enough. You don't bash a member of my "family" without expecting anything in return. Also, you're making fun of yourself and the whole Judo community and as a Judoka myself, I don't want to be laughed at because you can't contain yourself.

I bet you that all MUNTINLUPA JUDOKAS, the old and the new, will like this.
