Beijing hosts judo seminar

18 Mar 2013
Beijing, China: A Judo Refereeing and Coaching Seminar was held this month in Beijing, bringing together 650 coaches, athletes and referees. The International Judo Federation sent several experts. In addition to the seminar, the Chinese Judo Association organised a two-day test competition and a two-day training camp.

"We would like to express our sincere appreciation to the IJF for sending experts from the refereeing and coaching fields to Beijing to help give lectures during the National New Rules Seminar,” said Mr. Wu Qi, President of the Chinese Judo Association.
“The seminar was a great success, and now everybody has a better and deeper understanding of the theory part as well as the practical aspects of the new rules. It will certainly help improving future development of Judo in China.”
Commenting on the seminar, Chinese officials said: “We plan to carry on more activities like seminars, judo clinics, competitions, training camps and forums, as well as education and promotion programmes in China, especially in the framework of the 2014 Nanjing Youth Olympic Games and of the annual Qingdao Grand Prix.”

IJF expert Neil Adams added: "It was a very friendly atmosphere, although everyone knew there was a job at hand and that was getting all of their fighters, coaches and referees on the same page working towards a common goal.”
