It is generally categorized as a modern martial art which later evolved into a combat and Olympic sport. More than 50 referees and coaches from across the country joined this training.
Referee, Kap Cin Pau said “This training aims to turn out excellent referees and coaches for international contests. Our Myanmar Judo Federation has been trying to promote Judo also with the support from the Ministry of Health and Sports.”
This Judo Referee and Coach Training is designed to cover techniques, first aid, rules and regulations with the help of the Japanese Judo experts. It’s learnt that Myanmar Judo Federation began a camp training with 37 athletes to participate in the upcoming 17th SEA Games.
