Best practices

  • Promotion of Judo

This project highly contributes to the development of judo across the majority of Tunisia. It is a great way for us to create a structure in schools and promote judo whilst educating children. Gratefully, the number of judo practices are increased in our country.

  • Summer Camp

Every summer we organise judo training camp where kids can assist with their parents, playing judo and swimming in the beach in holidays and listening to the music and watching cinema together. I will never forget the first party with kids when celebrating on October 28th, 2018, the birthday of the founder of judo, Master Jigoro Kano. The international judo days was a very great opportunity for young judoka and tunisian judo school staff to make a big judo show in the republic capital center Tunis.

  • Belt examination

Ar the end of every school year we organize exams for belts. Belts exams take place in competitive judo hall of the Tunisian judo national team where they use to train daily.

The kids aged from 4 to 10 take an exam for belt all judo kids awarded by new belt and golden medal after exam. Belt exams are in a way a presentation for parents. This way they can see their childs progression throughout the year.

  • Judo Ukemi lessons in all Tunisian schools

The Tunisian judo federation collaborates with all the Tunisian schools for free they share the idea of the project of judo UKEMI lessons for all children in school.

Of course lessons are adapted to kids. Very little material is needed and the exercices are based on UKEMI or the special judo way of how to fall. So learning how to fall correctly: having the right technique, reflexes to roll, absorbing the fall with the hands and feet, protecting the head is an excellent way to reduce the number of injures from falling accidents.

The Tunisian judo school team collaborates with all national schools to benefit from the falling exercices regardless of their qualifications, talent, age, sex and social circumstances.

  • Exchange Programs

The Tunisian judo school staff are interested to international exchange programs for kids they have a strong desire to participate for program for professionals.

  • Judo for Peace and Love

The Tunisian judo school staff decided to establish a special Judo For Peace national Commission to promote the idea of Peace and love - in its all forms, in all parts of Tunisia. It's a solid fact that many of the problems of to days caused by poverty, by unemployment, by masses of young people ending life with no purpose.
