The young athletes started with a training session in the sportshall of the “Wirtschaftsschule Alpenland”, before moving to the “Sportspark” in Bad Aibling for a common dinner in the “B&O Parkgelände“.
In an old typical Bavarian restaurant „Peißnhof“ the coaches took this opportunity, together with Anamaria Budiu, to talk about „sports and peace“ and how judo can help to build peace among communities. The head of department, Denis Weisser, introduced the „Judo Principles“ to the children.
The young athletes then slept in the dojo, before doing some more sport activities the next morning.
The gathering was concluded with a last judo session, where everyone had a lot of fun. Coach Anamaria Budiu said: „The children did very well and we will participate next year again. It’s nice how through this ‘small’ event big values can be shared.“
Bad Aibling, with approximately 20,000 inhabitants, is located in Bavaria, in the south of Germany. The city sports clubs counts more than 2,000 members, including more than 100 judoka (information at www.judo-bad-aibling.de) who had already participated in several programmes such as the World Judo Day.
