On Sunday, October 6th Judo Aiseau – Presles organised the 10th edition of the International Hainaut Cup. And for the first time, the organisation decided to have a “handi-kata” tournament alongside the original tournament.

What can we say- the tournament was very successful! Special Needs judoka showed their art, judged by the same jury as their regular friends.

We applaud Aiseau-Presles for their effort, in line with the interest that EJU have shown into the Adapted Kata sport and we hope that there will be a follow-up in 2020, and of course that their initiative will also encourage other clubs and organisations to organise an Adapted Kata tournament!

If a club is looking for advice on how to do this, then of course SNJU are always at your service to help you with your effort.
