Japan and Ukraine is making this year “Japan year in Ukraine” to commemorate 25th anniversary of the two countries’ diplomatic relationship and running various events including of sports.
As a part of this, we sent judo coaches to Ukraine from Japan and conducted judo clinics for top-class players and meetings with sports industry people.

We conducted the judo clinics at Olympic athletes training facilities in Kiev and Dnipro for top-class players and their coaches. In the clinics, world championship winning Japanese coaches taught basic technical skills and art of throwing in practice sessions.

Participants were focused on listening to coaching and were enthusiastically taking a part in the practice session.
In the meeting sessions with government officials and judo people, active discussion was held and interaction between the two countries’ officials and judo federation people were successfully promoted. We can expect constructive collaboration between the two countries to happen in the future as a result of this exchange program.

Roman Nasirov, Head of Judo Federation of Ukraine (FDU)
