World Judo Day

All most 100 judoka gathered at the capital of Jamaica, Kingston, for their first every World Judo Day. Although judo has only been recently established in Jamaica, pupils from three different parishes shared their afternoon on the tatami. With the national championships fast approaching, the focus was on randori, whilst celebrating their latest acknowledged Olympic sport. The session was carried out by Rio 2016 Olympian, Szandra Szogedi. TV Jamaica also attended to capture the event. The President of the Jamaican Judo Association, Mr. Dwayne Barnett, considered the afternoon as a successful first WJD; on the island;

“I am extremely pleased that almost 100 judoka turned up to take part in our first World Judo Day event. Considering that judo has only been at the island for a few months, I am satisfied with the progress of the sport and how the day has turned out. As in the theme, loads of new friendships were formed and overall it was a tremendously eventful afternoon for the Jamaican Judo Association.”
