dWeb.News Article from Daniel Webster dWeb.News


France Judo has set a goal of establishing 1,000 new dojos in time for the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

The goal was set with the educational and social benefits that the sport provides. France Judo has been working with sponsors, the government, and the National Sports Agency in order to achieve this lofty goal.

The scheme’s first new dojo is due to be inaugurated on Wednesday (November 24) in Nanterre.

Herve Morin, the President of Normandy, has also met with France Judo President Stephane Nomis, with plans afoot for 30 new dojos to be set up in the region.

France Judo plans to identify vacant properties, work with private and public partners to re-fit it as a dojo and then set up a club to manage it or join forces to operate an existing club.

Nomis met with Roxana Maracineanu, Sports Minister, and Emmanuelle Wargon, Housing Minister to discuss the project.

Working alongside the state and working with sponsors reduces costs, France Judo insists.

France is one of the world’s leading judo powers and the nation is second on the sport’s all-time Olympic medals table, behind only Japan.

French Judoka won eight medals in Tokyo 2020,, including the mixed team title.

Clarisse Agbegnenou, at under-63 kilograms, also won a solo gold medal and is the reigning world champion.

There are now fewer than 1,000 days until the Paris 2024 Olympics.
