Putin named Honorary President of the European Judo Union by

Wednesday, 21 December, 2005

The 57th European Judo Union Ordinary Congress this year was organised in Moscow. During this Congress, several revolutionary proposals were passed in the continued development of this Olympic Sport, one of which was the change of the colour of the competition area, where it now becomes one complete colour bordered with another colour.

But the highlight of this event was the appointment of Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin as Honorary President of the European Judo Union. His Excellency Vladimir Putin, known all over the world as a Judoka, has already been bestowed with several important titles, but in his own words this was one of the positions he has close at heart.

8th Dan Black Belt, Vladimir Putin has a long history of Judo Experience and used to train under one of the most famous coaches, Mr. Anatoly Rakhlin, who still controls the females' national team of Russia. :eek:

The official ceremony of this appointment was held in the Theatre of the Russian Army, the largest theatre in Europe, just before the prestigious Open European Championships started, where the impressive rotating stage brought in the full size tatami. This event was transmitted direct on television, both nationally and internationally.

After the presentation of the medals, President Putin received the full directing committee of the European Judo Union for a drink in the private chambers of the theatre, where he was individually introduced to every director by Marius L. Vizer, President of the European Judo Union. The organisation of this Congress, Open European Championships, and subsequent Gala Dinner, has set an exclusive level of this sport which in the words of President Putin "is a great spectacular sport". And will now be up to the Romanian Judo Federation to keep up the standard of organisation.

Being in Putin's company, well...

I prefer Judo to Ju-Jitsu because of Kano Jigoro. He opened his first Kodokan dojo in the early 1880's in Tokyo. Kano used his knowledge and experience of Ju-Jitsu to create Judo. During the Kodokan's years, Judo almost completely smothered the prevailing Ju-Jitsu traditions of the area, perhaps due to Judo's success in direct competitions with various Ju-Jitsu forms. As the saying goes:
