The competition was a Judo lesson, a learning lesson for all participants, but also a show for parents, supporters or Judoka with colored belts.
This activity within our Judo4All project was also a good occasion to promote the inclusion in Judo and an opportunity to make the Judo4All project known in the community of Mehedinti county.
We are looking forward to June and the meeting of our partners from the Judo4All project for a new experience and many unforgettable moments.
