Max Rock Levy (Totos)

Our Hero 


For those who never had the pleasure of meeting Max Rock levy (Totos), here’s some background information: He began his training in the 1970s in Cap-Haitien, Haiti under the guidance of a Cuban wrestler named Basil.   Mr. Levy relocated to Port-au-Prince, the capital of Haiti, in 1976 and attained success as a judo coach, guiding many students to championship status.  He moved to New York in 1990 where he founded Totos Judo Club in Spring Valley.  Totos has trained many  judokas during his career.

Thank you, Totos!
