Our judokas at the Judo Camp in Quebec







  "Judo Master Hiroshi Katanishi, an important point of reference for the Summer Camp, was recently awarded 8th Dan by the Kodokan in Tokyo, an appropriate indicator of the level of expertise reached by anyone of this grade. The Judo Master has been visiting us since 2004 and has become something of a judo celebrity in Italy, at least by those who are passionate about our discipline."
