Concerning Judo

In Burundi, Judo remains a little known activity, and thus requires particular strains to allow better national and international recognition. This must be done to support the development of the youth from the sporting and socioeducational point of view. We think that the practice of a martial art such as judo makes possible to positively channel the violence which remains unfortunately very present in a society which underwent a so long crisis.

For that purpose, the Burundian Judo Federation wishes to obtain adapted material and perennial infrastructures to welcome new judokas, but also to organize events to give the desire to play judo. In order to develop itself, the Federation must be able from now on to be able to work with different publics (girls, orphans, young people of less than 14 years, adults of more than thirty years, military etc…) and to set up adequate pedagogy. Their request also lies in the acquisition of the international rules of refereeing, and in the training of the “Katas” (codified techniques).

Our interlocutors always showed an huge will to develop the activity but are unceasingly slowed down by the economic conditions and social precarious of the country. After having supported them since long years, we remain at their side in this key moment of the history of the Federation. Indeed, since its creation in 1991, the Burundian Federation of Judo was in a phase of construction and rebuilding; it enters from now on the era of the development.
