The Judo Victory Clinic was started in 2007 by Mizuno in the major Judo nation of France, and this year welcomed Makoto Takimoto, the gold medallist from the 2000 Sydney Olympics, as an instructor. The clinic was held in two locations in France, in the Northwest in the city of Rouen, and in the Northeast in the city of Reims.It is a valuable experience to be taught first-hand by a gold medallist from Judo’s birthplace of Japan. Various levels of Judo practitioners gathered at this exciting workshop, from children to black-belts. Takimoto Sensei presented the finer details of the popular throwing techniques of the taiotoshi and uchimata, taking care to summarise their essential elements in a well thought-out manner. From children to Judo instructors, all levels of participants were very happy with the content of the presentation and were able to learn from it.
