Dear members of the European Judo Community, dear Friends! This joyful and magic season I would like to extend very warm Christmas greetings to you. Judo is more than sport, it is our passion, way of life, it builds friendship and family relationships, career and personal growth. I am glad and thankful that we spent this year together making and following judo heroes, wonderful events, important and captivating projects. On behalf of the European Judo Union I would like to wish you a very happy time with your dearest ones, may these days be merry and bright, filled with plenty of warmth, love, cheer and peace. Merry Christmas!
