My father was a teacher of the judo club “Chibecha Judo Club” which I am operating now,so I had practice judo since I was a small child. After becoming an adult, I worked outside my hometown, however my father died young and this club was in danger of disappearing, so I was succeeded to my father’s mission , came back to my hometown and start to rebuild this club. It has been around 15 years since then. It is my pleasure to see the children growing through Judo.I want children to know that they can spread their own world if they do their best and I want them to do their best to expand their world, no matter where they go. This area, Chibecha-town, is country side, so there are wonderful Japanese mother nature. And we have close relationship with people in town, so not only our judo friends but also the people of the town welcome you! Since we have a common culture called judo, we can spend a wonderful time and we can spread our world together. Best Regards, Satoshi Yoshida, Representative of Shibecya judo club
