Navy safety leader visits NASP training commands By Lt. Jonathan Bacon NATTC PAO and Ens. Courtney Vandament NASC PAO

The Navy’s director of Occupational Safety and Health observed training at Naval Air Technical Training Center (NATTC) and Naval Aviation Schools Command (NASC) onboard Naval Air Station Pensacola July 18. Leslie Holland visited the training commands to see how each school conducts high risk training and ensure the safety of its students and staff. Discussion with safety personnel, as well as each of the school’s command leadership triad, gave her a better understanding of their safety processes and operating procedures. “The instructors and support staff at NATTC and NASC provide exemplary training to our Navy and Marine Corps

team,” said Holland. “Safety is not only a process through which these highly qualified professionals develop and conduct training, safety is also deeply embedded into the curriculum in such a way that core risk management thought processes are ingrained in our newest maritime warriors.” While at NATTC, she observed shipboard aircraft firefighting training. “This realistic and intensive high risk training is required by all aviation rating ‘A’ school students,” said ABHC Alfonso Sosa, firefighting’s leading chief petty officer. “During this training, airmen are taught how to approach a fire, handle a fire hose, and how work together as a team to extinguish an aircraft fire. Throughout this training, NATTC staff closely monitors students to ensure their

NHP: Celebrate World Breastfeeding Week Commentary by Kelly Trout International Board Certified Lactation Consultant, Naval Hospital Pensacola

Each year, the first week of August is known as World Breastfeeding Week, and this year’s theme is “Breastfeeding Support: Close to Mothers.” Breastfeeding support encompasses many different aspects including employment, responding to emergencies, government legislation, family and social networks and healthcare. No matter the role that you fill, we can all unite as a community and provide the support and encouragement that mothers need. Breastfeeding your baby provides countless benefits that continue throughout life. These benefits include lowered risks for diseases and illnesses such as diabetes (Type 1 and Type 2), asthma, obesity and respiratory and gastrointestinal infections. How does this benefit us as a society? Recent research shows that if 90 percent of families breastfed exclusively for six months, the United States NHP from page 1

As one of the principal pioneers of the Navy model of patient-centered care or Medical Home Port, she helped to clearly define how primary care should be delivered in Navy medicine. Medical Home Port is a team based approach to primary health care where patients are assigned to a specific Medical Home Port Team. The team reviews all of the patient’s medical needs and ensures that anything required for the patient is addressed during the appointment, including booking referrals and giving missing immunizations. “What is unique about Medical Home Port are the efforts to maintain continuity between patients and their own primary care providers,” said Padden. “Increased continuity dramatically improves the care provided. The frequency of visits decreases because providers can better assess patients and patient satisfaction goes up because patients are going to see someone that knows their history and they trust.” The National Center for Quality Assurance (NCQA) has recognized more than 45 of the Navy’s Medical Home Port practices as Level III Medical Homes. Among the requirements for Level III certification are the ability for patients to contact their team 24-hours a day, seven days a week and the team’s availability to handle same day appointments. Naval Hospital Pensacola alone has 10 Level III Medical Home Ports. “I’m very proud of the efforts Naval Hospital Pensacola’s staff has done to get 10 of our Medical Home Port teams recognized, set-

would save $13 billion per year as breastfed infants typically need fewer healthcare visits,

prescriptions and hospitalizations. Breastfeeding also leads to a more productive work force

ting the example for the rest of the Navy to follow,” said Padden. “Everyone at NHP, from the staff that answer the phones to the physicians, has worked hard to make the Medical Home Port model work. It takes a team effort, but the hard work is worth the effort because we are providing better care for our patients.” In 2011 and 2012, Padden travelled to every Navy Medical Treatment Facility around the world to train them on the Medical Home Port model. Her efforts have led to significant improvements in patient satisfaction and provider-patient continuity. Prior to Medical Home Ports, continuity between a patient and assigned provider was less than 40 percent. Today, the average is between 7093 percent. Patient satisfaction has also risen and exceeds 90 percent at some Medical Home Ports. Also receiving an award from the AHA was Cmdr. Matthew Case with Naval Hospital Camp Lejeune. Case received the 2012 Federal Health Care Executive Special Achievement Award. “It was an honor to receive an award alongside my old friend and colleague Cmdr. Matt Case,” said Padden. “There are many folks whose efforts have made Navy Medicine and primary care better these past few years and they share in the recognition and the award from the AHA today. This really was a team effort.” For more information, visit www.navy.mil, www. facebook. com/ usnavy, or www. twitter. com/ usnavy.

effort to increase breastfeeding success rates. The staff at the Naval Hospital Pensacola is continuing education and working toward the necessary steps to earn “Baby Friendly” hospital accreditation. Some of these steps include offering 24-hour support and assistance, increasing our mother and baby time together, which includes 24hour rooming in, educating our families and staff and providing a variety of support networks. Our most recent project is focusing on taking the steps to become a five-star maternity hospital, which is an initiative in place by the Florida Breastfeeding Coalition to support the Florida Quest for Quality Maternity Care. Wherever you may fall in the circle of support for mothers and children, know that you are a precious part of our community and your invaluable love and support are needed to continue to strengthen our sense of community amongst the breastfeeding mothers.

safety, as well as reinforce proper procedures and techniques.” After her firsthand look at firefighting training, Holland met with Capt. Jim Daniels, NATTC’s commanding officer, Cmdr. Michael Fisher, NASC’s executive officer, Capt. Terry Hammond, executive officer at the Center for Naval Aviation Technical Training (CNATT), and their respective safety officers to discuss high risk training and safety. Throughout her tour, Holland emphasized the professionalism of the naval aviation. “Aviation safety is a product of the high professionalism that the naval aviation enterprise is committed to during the execution of its mission,” said Daniels. “Its safety record is a direct result of organizational excellence and the commitment to invest in the proficiency of its Sailors through its high risk training.” Maria Giovanetty, NATTC’s safety officer, said it’s important to share with senior Navy leadership how NATTC provides safe training environment for Sailors and Marines. “It was a privilege to have the opportunity to show Ms. Holland NATTC’s firefighting training,” Giovanetty said. “We’re the baseline for shipboard aircraft firefighting training. From ‘A’ school to fleet training teams we set the standard for the fleet. We were able to show Ms. Holland how we safely conduct this high risk training and the ways we minimize risk.” After her visit to NATTC, Holland saw how students are trained at NASC’s Aviation Rescue Swimmer School. Instructors and command leaders explained their proactive safety stance that enables them to provide a safe and effective learning environment. Holland concluded her visit watching students learning about water survival, where the “crawl, walk, run” approach to training is used. “Small steps are taken for each evolution in order to better acclimate the students to swimming and treading water while wearing full flight gear. We take exposing our students to a solid safety culture very seriously knowing they will carry that mindset to the fleet,” said Fisher.

leadership skills by returning to camp as junior counselors. One of the program graduates, Olivia Abney, 15, said she enjoyed working as a junior counselor this year. “I like hanging out with kids,” Abney said. “I help the counselors keep the campers on track.” Campers spend two weeks in a classroom setting learning about goal setting, leadership and substance abuse prevention, among other important life skills. When the children were asked what they enjoyed the most about camp, they all agreed it was the activities outside the classroom that made camp fun. Campers take educational field trips and participate in physical challenges such as the President’s Fitness Challenge. DEFY camper Rachidi Jones said the field trips were his favorite part of his time at camp. When asked

because mothers miss less work to care for sick infants. Now, if breastfeeding is so great, why isn’t every baby breastfed for at least the first year? The birth of a new baby is a joyous time in our lives. However, it does not come without trials and tribulations. Breastfeeding can be demanding and exhausting during the first four to six weeks. This can be the most volatile time when we all need to be available to our friends, family and neighbors who are trying to breastfeed. We have a vast majority of experience within our community. This experience comes through various programs including Healthy Start, New Parent Support Programs, La Leche League, Women, Infant and Children (WIC) peer counselors, Red Cross visiting nurses and multiple international board certified lactation consultants (IBCLC) throughout the Gulf Coast region. Let’s not forget one of our strongest supporters of all … the fellow mom standing right next to you. There are several ongoing initiatives that are in place in an

Moving benefits: To grandmothers’ houses we go By Lisa Smith Molinari Military Spouse Columnist

“Grams, could we make brownies?” my daughter asks, already knowing the answer. “Is the Pope a Catholic?” replies my husband’s mother, smiling up at Anna, who has at least a half a foot on her. Short but feisty, born of Irish heritage, humbly brought up in Ho-Ho-Kus, N.J., married 53 years to a quintessential Italian, she raised five children and hates housework and cooking, but loves her nine grandchildren. Digging through her cupboards, Grams is surprised by what she has stockpiled. “Jesus, Mary and Good St. Joseph, here’s some coconut – ever made Girdle Stretchers, Anna? Oh, and I’ve got a bunch of cake mixes, and here’s raisins, and a helluva lot of chocolate chips ....” Anna removes a baking pan, inadvertently causing a small but noisy avalanche, sending Grams’ dogs, West Highland Terriers named Patty and Murphy, scrambling into the dining room. Grams laughs, assuring her granddaughter that there’s nothing she’ll ever do to make her angry. Anna and her sister transform the cozy blue kitchen into a science lab, eventually producing a batch of triple chocolate peanut butter chip cupcakes, in which Grams happily indulges, despite her

About the columnist Lisa Smith Molinari, mother of three, has been a military spouse for 20 years (and running). Her humor column, “The Meat and Potatoes of Life,” appears weekly in newspapers and on Stripes Military Moms, a website associated with Stars and Stripes newspaper. She also writes columns for Military Spouse magazine and a blog at www.themeatandpotatoesoflife.com. She recently won second place for online columns with less than 100,000 monthly visitors at the National Society of Newspaper Columnists conference in Hartford, Conn. She and her family are stationed at Naval Station Newport in Rhode Island. diabetes. A few days later, we are back in Grams’ kitchen, saying goodbye. The Beltway and I-270 lead us out of urban sprawl and into pastoral hills and forested mountains. Three hours into our drive, signs of civilization dwindle to tiny towns, coal trucks and soft serve ice cream joints, as our minivan rolls deeper into rural Western Pennsylvania. While the children snooze, I make a mental “to do” list of the things I need to do when we arrive at our final destination. Thankfully, our ninth military move from Mayport to Newport, R.I., has made our summer visits with the grandmothers a bit easier, since they both live on the way. “Kids, wake up! We’re almost at Grammy’s house!” I say, peering into the rear view mirror at open mouths, drooping heads and sprawled legs.

Once in the driveway, the girls run giggling from the minivan, sneaking up to Grammy’s kitchen window to scare her. Mercifully, their plan is foiled by Oscar, the stereotypically Napoleonic dachshund, whose sharp bark is as good as any home security system. Grammy appears at the side door, miniature Cujo at her feet, forcing the girls to settle for a lame “Boo!” from the shrubs. “Wait! Go back!” Grammy pleads, “You have to come through the ‘Secret Garden.” My mother was a first grade teacher for 30 years. Despite retirement, it’s still in her blood. Sticking to the schedule, Grammy leads us back to the driveway so that we must walk through the trees that she had carefully pruned and adorned with lanterns and birdhouses. With step one of her plan

complete, we finally hug and kiss hello. Much like Grams’ house, we congregate in the kitchen. With all of us seated at the booth she painted with red apples so many years ago, Grammy seizes the opportunity to have our undivided attention. She reaches into a kitchen drawer, retrieving four typed handouts; each colorfully highlighted and decorated with sparkly smiley face stickers. “Kids, during your stay here at ‘Grammy Camp,’ there are some rules which must be followed,” she says only half-seriously. “Seriously?” Anna replies, only half seriously. The girls look at each other and smile. They know how Grammy is. A mix of the corny but nurturing Miss Patty from “Romper Room,” the natureloving Miss Jean from “Hodgepodge Lodge,” and the

scatter-brained Miss Frizzle from “Magic School Bus.” She goes over her “Camper’s Guide to Health & Happiness,” explaining the finicky plumbing which still uses well water, and upcoming “mandatory” participation in creative activities such as making gourd birdhouses. In the days to follow, we follow her plan. Before we know it, we are back in Grammy’s kitchen, saying goodbye. As my minivan heads northward again to our next home in Rhode Island, I wonder what it would be like if we weren’t in the Navy and lived closer to family. Between the exits I realize: the rarity of our time with Grams and Grammy is precisely what makes it so precious.

Climate factors producing an active hurricane season From http://www.noaanews.noaa.gov

In its 2013 Atlantic hurricane season outlook, NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center is forecasting an active or extremely active season this year – and the peak of the season is approaching. For the six-month hurricane season, which began June 1, NOAA’s Atlantic Hurricane Season Outlook says there is a 70 percent likelihood of 13 to 20 named storms (winds of 39 mph or higher), of which seven to 11 could become hurricanes (winds of 74 mph or higher), including three to six major hurricanes (Category 3, 4 or 5; winds of 111 mph or higher). These ranges are well above the seasonal average of 12 named storms, six hurricanes and three major hurricanes. “With the devastation of Sandy fresh in our minds, and another active season predicted, everyone at NOAA is committed to providing life-saving forecasts in the face of these storms and ensuring that Americans are prepared and ready ahead of time.” said Kathryn Sullivan, Ph.D., NOAA acting administrator. “As we saw first-hand with Sandy, it’s important to remember that tropical storm and hurricane impacts are not limited to the coastline. Strong winds, torrential rain, flooding, and tornadoes often threaten inland areas far from where the storm first makes landfall.” Three climate factors that strongly control Atlantic hurricane activity are expected to come together to produce an active or extremely active 2013 hurricane season. These

are: • Continuation of the atmospheric climate pattern, which includes a strong west African monsoon, that is responsible for the ongoing era of high activity for Atlantic hurricanes that began in 1995; • Warmer-than-average water temperatures in the tropical Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea; and • El Niño is not expected to develop and suppress hurricane formation. “This year, oceanic and atmospheric conditions in the Atlantic basin are expected to

produce more and stronger hurricanes,” said Gerry Bell, Ph.D., lead seasonal hurricane forecaster with NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center. “These conditions include weaker wind shear, warmer Atlantic waters and conducive winds patterns coming from Africa.” NOAA’s seasonal hurricane outlook is not a hurricane landfall forecast; it does not predict how many storms will hit land or where a storm will strike. Forecasts for individual storms and their impacts are be provided throughout the season by NOAA’s National Hurricane Center.

Whiting NEX celebrates grand reopening Story, photo by Ens.Emily Hegarty NASWF PAO

T

he NAS Whiting Field Navy Exchange (NEX) celebrated its grand reopening July 10. After more than two years of renovation planning and four months of construction, the NEX celebrated with cake, free hot dogs, giveaways and opportunities to register to win various items, including NEX gift cards, haircuts, Subway sandwiches, and household appliances. Additionally, the NEX hosted its first ever tent sale, which featured 30-75 percent off discounts on a variety of NEX products, from backpacks to electronics to linens and kitchenware. The celebration featured a series of remarks from Stephen Knowles, the vice president of the mid-South district; Steven Rosenstein, the district operations manager; Linda Larrabee, the Whiting Field general manager; and NAS Whiting Field Executive Officer Cmdr. Greggory Gray during a ribbon cutting, which was followed by a cake cutting and an invitation for all patrons to take advantage of special discounts throughout the store. During the ribbon cutting ceremony, Gray thanked district vendors, the Navy Exchange Service Command (NEXCOM) vision team, and the NASWF team for their hard work on this project, especially in their efforts in staying ahead of the game in order to keep the store open throughout renovations. The renovation started about two years ago once NEX management received approval from NEXCOM to go ahead with their proposals to redesign the store based on changing customer needs. The day after Christmas, NEX workers began emptying the minimart adjacent to the main NEX to make room for the first phases of renovation. The total renovation was completed in a series of 10 stages and took ap-

proximately four months. The store remained open throughout all stages of renovation. “Now we feel we are able to give the Whiting Field customer a much more enjoyable experience, which is certainly what they deserve,” said Larrabee. Improvements are visible from the floor to ceiling of the new space, and include all new fixtures, floors, lighting and paint, as well as a change in the store layout and set up. The store now features wider aisles, a design point incorporated to ameliorate customers’ shopping experience. All of these changes add up to a vastly improved NEX. Larrabee affirmed that the upgrade was sorely needed, as the building previously featured décor harking back to the late 1980s/early ’90s. “It’s like Christmas in July,” she exclaimed. “I’m just so proud to be able to offer this kind of environment for our customers to shop in.” In addition to the main NEX building, the barber shop also received an upgrade, and Subway will also be doing some refreshing and remodeling within the next 30 days. In addition to permanent material improvements, the remodel gave the NEX a chance to better realign merchandise with the needs of the Whiting Field customer and offered an opportunity for the NEX to evaluate sales, leading them to eliminate or

downsize lesser sellers to make room for higher demand items. One of the biggest changes in merchandise is that the NEX cut back on carrying softlines in favor of an active-duty section. The new initiative is focused on “making a better you, and driving fitness through power bars, active wear, athletic shoes and supplements so that we’re making the 21st century Sailor as fit and ready as possible,” said Larrabee. Another significant change is that the NEX eliminated grocery foods as the commissary next door covers most of those needs. However, in light of the reduced commissary hours, the NEX will be stocking milk, bread and other food staples to best provide for their customers. Another significant aspect of the renovation was the restoration of the package store to its original location next to the main NEX. Larrabee stated that they realized customers preferred one-stop shopping, and that they were dealing with higher running expenses when operating two freestanding businesses. The package store’s new location is equal in space to the freestanding store. Overall, “the shopping experience is far, far improved,” Larrabee beamed. Fleet and family services will be moving offices into the space previously occupied by the package store.

One of 300 stores worldwide, the NAS Whiting NEX is distinguishing itself as an example of the NEX’s new branding strategy. In a district that extends from Panama City to Kingsville, Texas, to Tennessee, the Whiting Field NEX was selected as the first store in the mid-South district to undergo this type of renovation in keeping with the NEXs new branding system. “It’s a big deal for us, this is the store that we’ll use as the example for the rest of our stores,” stated Knowles. He noted that the Panama City NEX will be the next location in the district to undergo remodeling. The grand reopening was also a chance for the NEX to highlight many discounts and savings opportunities available to customers at the NEX. The Military Star Card program, which features special promotions throughout the whole year, is offering special no-interest deals on certain purchases of electronics. Additionally, customers who apply for a Military Star Card receive an extra 10 percent off their first day’s purchases. The NEX also offers price matching for any item they stock and will match competitors prices, including discounts found online. Larrabee acknowledged that while the Whiting Field NEX does stock a variety of products, the Pensacola NEX sometimes carries products that the Whiting

Field NEX doesn’t keep in stock, and it can be a hassle to drive there to pick something up. The solution to that, she stated, is that the Whiting Field NEX can get the product for you. “If there’s something a customer knows that the Pensacola NEX has that we don’t carry, we can usually get it for them,” explained Larrabbe. Whiting Field NEX sends couriers weekly to the Pensacola NEX, so all Whiting Field customers need to do is ask at the customer service desk. Trips are usually made on Tuesdays, and patrons will receive a phone call once their product is available for pickup at the Whiting Field NEX. Larrabee acknowledged that some customers may wonder how the NEX can afford these renovations during a time when so many government-affiliated programs are struggling with their budgets. She explained that the NEX exists only on profit, and used these profits to pay for this renovation, not taxpayer dollars. Larrabee stated that the NEX is proud to serve as a “bright light in a gloomy economy,” and use their resources to best serve their patrons. The Whiting Field NEX is currently open from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays; from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursdays and Fridays and 8:30 to 3:30 p.m. Saturdays. The store is closed on Sundays.

Plan to make your new school year a healthy one

School/ Sports Physical Rodeos at Naval Hospital Pensacola It’s getting close to back-toschool time and school/sports physical rodeos will be offered at Naval Hospital Pensacola (NHP) for children enrolled in Family Medicine and Pediatrics departments. The physicals will take place in the NHP Pediatrics Clinic tomorrow, Aug. 3, and Aug. 17 from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. Call to make an appointment for the rodeos: NHP Family Medicine, 505-7120; NHP Pediatrics, 505-7121.

From NewsUSA

The school year’s beginning means new classes, new clothes, new shoes – so why not a new and healthier lifestyle? Going to school forces children off the couch and helps them set a regular eating schedule. Parents should use the new school year as an opportunity to encourage extra exercise, whether through clubs or sports, and healthier eating. Here are some ways that parents can help their children enjoy a healthier new year: • Get off to a good start. Breakfast helps fuel young bodies and minds. Studies show that breakfast improves academic performance and energy levels and helps children receive adequate nutrition. A balanced breakfast should include carbohydrates, such as grain or fruit, and protein. If your child likes cereal, find a brand that contains 100 percent whole grains. Other healthy choices include fruit smoothies, 100 percent whole grain toast with peanut butter and oatmeal. Encourage your child to drink fat-free or low-fat milk or equivalent milk products. • Teach your child to pack his own lunch. Children enjoy eating foods that they prepare themselves, so involve your child in planning and packing his own lunch. Make healthy lunches fun. Use cookie-cutters to design animal- or car-shaped sandwiches and include hummus, nut butters or yogurt for dipping sliced fruits and vegetables.

The beginning of a new school year brings the opportunity for new and better ways of doing things. Homework and health are two great areas for parents and students to re-evaluate.

Make sure that your child’s lunch includes grain, protein and produce. • Think ahead for snacktime. Have easy-to-prepare, healthy snacks ready at home. Clean and slice fresh fruits and vegetables early in the week, then store them in the fridge. Keep whole-grain crackers, crispbreads or rice cakes on hand. Unsweet-

ened applesauce, which comes in individual cups, provides a healthy option that most children can serve themselves. • Stay active after dinner. Instead of watching television in the evenings, plan a physical activity. Going to the park, playing ball in the backyard or holding bowling parties all provide healthy entertainment.

Savvy skills for shopping school supplies Back-to-school 101: Get a head start on basic school supplies already have at home, make a list of what each child needs and start looking for the best deals. “Many stores offer bargains on school supplies during the summer months, so getting an early start can add up to savings,” said Bailey. • Create a budget: While it can be good to get children involved and let them choose some items, it’s a smart idea to have a budget. If your children know how much to spend, they can do the math. Budgets can teach children a valuable lesson in both math and economics. You can also involve your

From NAPS

While every school year is different, one thing that remains the same is the desire to save on school supplies. Moms are looking to save on more than just dollars and cents. They want to save on time and stress, too. To help, award-winning author, radio talk show host and mom Maria Bailey offers tips and advice on how to get yourself and your child off to a successful start this school year: • Shop early: Vacation is a good time to inventory what supplies you

all the to-do’s. • Search for savings: Walking up and down the aisles to find the right product at the right price for your child isn’t as hard as you think. Looking for a good deal can help you save big when buying back-toschool products. Check out your local circular for the top deals each week. • Buy basics in bulk: While teachers provide lists of specifics, the basics that students need to start out the school year are pretty consistent, so it can pay to buy in bulk, especially if you have more than one child. Getting organized, looking for deals and mapping out the best way to prepare for the start of school will lead to a stress-free and easy experience.

Smalley Youth Center aboard Naval Air Station Pensacola on a Tuesday or Thursday evening may be greeted by the loud slaps and sounds of bodies hitting mats compliments of the Bushido Sport Judo Club, which conducts classes for children and adults. Anyone walking into the Fred G. Smalley Youth Center aboard Naval Air Station Pensacola on a Tuesday or Thursday evening may be greeted by the loud slaps and sounds of bodies hitting mats compliments of the Bushido Sports Judo Club, which conducts judo classes for children and adults. Founded in 1882 by Dr. Jigoro Kano, judo, which is translated as the “gentle way,” teaches the principle of flexibility in the application of technique. Judo relies on flexibility and the efficient use of balance, leverage and movement in the performance of throws and other skills. Technique, skill and timing, rather than the use of brute strength, are essential components for success in judo. Most judo classes begin with ukemi, literally translated as “receiving body,” which is the art of knowing how to respond correctly to an attack and incorporates skills to allow someone to

do so safely. “The first thing you have to learn is how to fall,” said Lt. j.g. Andy Barker, a Navy nurse with Naval Branch Health Clinic Naval Air Technical Training Center. “If you do not learn how to fall correctly, then you are going to get hurt.” Break falls are used in judo when being thrown, which happens frequently. There are two types of ukemi in judo, falls in which the arm strikes the mat and falls in which the body rolls forward in a somersaulting motion. “What we try to prevent is (students) putting out their hands when they fall because that's going to cause an injury,” Barker said. “Getting students comfortable with falling is paramount because that’s what is going to prevent the majority of injuries.” Judo also has a myriad of health benefits. For both young and old, the physical exertion performed on a constant basis

Lt. j.g. Andy Barker, a Navy nurse with Naval Branch Health Clinic Naval Air Technical Training Center, assists two young students in the proper way to grab an opponent during a recent Judo training session. Students learn how to properly throw each other and how to properly fall to reduce the risk of injury.

can help build muscle, increase cardio and lower cholesterol. “Judo is a sport that is physically enriching,” said Sensei Gerome L. Baldwin, 65, head instructor, Bushido Sports Judo Club. “I can do stuff out here that people my age or even half my age can’t do, its physically enhancing. Everything we do is for a different part of the body.” Judo not only works out the body, but it works out the mind.

Support Our Troops

Taking judo builds self-confidence, trust, self-discipline and respect for oneself and others. There are specific rules and regulations that students must follow in judo, such as respecting the teacher and the opponent and, as in the military, discipline plays a key role. Following instructions and focusing on techniques teaches how to prevent serious injury and improve skill. “My father got me into judo

when I was a kid,” Barker said, “and I have been doing it off and on since I was about 14 years old. I think (discipline in judo and the military) complement each other. Getting into (judo) at such a young age definitely helped me going through boot camp, later on in my career with officer development school and just day to day attention to details. “We get a couple of kids in here that have attention (problems) and we, (the instructors), believe that the discipline helps them focus. We see the kids really want to do this so they focus more, which in some ways is therapeutic.” The instructors, Sensei Baldwin and Sensei Paul Shaffer, have more than 100 years of combined judo experience. Both are retired from the armed forces and spend time instructing as a way to give back to the community. Classes are for adults and children (ages 5-17) from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday and 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. Saturday. Cost is $20 for adults and $15 for children per month to use the center, and participants must join the United States Judo Association at $50 a year, which covers insurance and tournament registration. For more information, call Shaffer at 324-3146 or Baldwin at 457-1421. For more news from Naval Hospital Pensacola, visit www.navy.mil/local/nh_pensacola/.

The Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR) program provides prevention, intervention and a 24/7/365 response to adult victims of sexual assault. Active-duty and adult family member sexual assault victims have a choice of reporting options, unrestricted and restricted.
