JUDO FESTIVAL 2021 IS ON OUR DOORSTEP

JUDO FESTIVAL 2021 IS ON OUR DOORSTEP

It’s that time of the year again! 

The annual EJU Judo Festival will commence on Tuesday 6th of July and will run till the 15th. Following the success of the 2020 edition which was held online, we are confident that the 2021 festival will be equally as good, if not better with a years worth of knowledge using the online platform. 

We have a fantastic line up of events from family fun and education to special needs to a gender round table talk. This is an opportunity for all of our judo community to find an element of our sport that they can connect with and hopefully learn something along the way. 

The schedule is set and we are excited to welcome back some of our judo experts and newly appointed commission members as well as special guests.
