Sharpe's position in WOMA and as inheritor of Stern's legacy has been confirmed by both Terry Stern (Jack's brother) and Lee Stern (his son). At right, we see Lee Stern presenting Sharpe with Jack's gi shortly after his passing.
The dedication and loyalty I have personally seen Sharpe display towards "Papasan" is admirable of any martial artist. All teachers should be so lucky as to have a student like Sharpe to carry on their legacy.
- Kosen Judo - Technically a ruleset for collegiate competition, Kosen Judo has evolved into its own style of Judo focusing on ground work similar to Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
- Olympic Judo - The modern sport sanctioned by the IJF and its national governing bodies
- Freestyle Judo - An offshoot of Olympic Judo retaining techniques that have been banned by the IJF
- Sambo - Otherwise known as Russian Judo
- Brazilian Jiu Jitsu - Included here as a sub-style of Judo. In fact, it is only called Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and not Brazilian Judo simply because in the early years of the Kodokan, the terms "jujutsu" and "judo" were used interchangeably but what Maeda Mitsuyo taught the Gracies was in fact Judo. The acronym BJJ is often mocked as standing for "Basically Just Judo."
- Yudo - Korean Judo
