The second edition of the EJU Judo Festival had come to the end. Almost 500 judo fans participated in Antalya. There were plenty of facilities on offer at the Maritim Pine Beach Resort for all range of ages and interests. Here are some views from different participants:

Robert Erikkson - Head Coach Sweden "The training camp provides high quality practices and also a very relaxed atmosphere. This is special and I think it is because of the beautiful environment here; so everybody is in a good mood. You can feel it during the sessions."

Marc Odenthal - German judoka -90kg "This is my I first time here in Antalya and it is just perfect. The training is good as one would expect for an OTC. And the breaks in between are much better here!”

Ksyusha Galitskaya – 12 year old participant of the Kids Club “I am enjoying my time here so much in Antalya. I love the beach, the training with other children. And I like the fact that I have the chance to meet so many famous judo heroes.”

Erik Vesterlund – participant of the Judo Festival “The festival is the perfect example of the EJU slogan: ‘Judo, more than sport!’ Whatever you are looking for, you will find here.”

Tom Reed - British judoka -81kg „The conditions for our sport - the best sport in the world - are just brilliant. There is a good spirit between the fighters.”

Jane Bridge-Charlot, EJU Expert “The judo family came together in this beautiful place in Antalya and worked together in a fantastic way. I really appreciated that time.”
