In addition to the institutions, Croceri also received a tribute plaque from the social cooperative Pars for having participated in a project to combat gambling addiction for minors, illustrating the benefits of judo practice for young people.

A curious detail to note is the presence of two boys who even arrived from California to take part in the lessons.

During each lessons the teachers have offered their personal and different contributions to the diffusion of the discipline for a healthy and conscious practice.

Many topics covered. It is hard to summarize all of them in words, however, some videos are available on the official Tre Torri facebook page.

Regardless the topics, all four masters emphasized the need to perform the practice safely, limiting the chances of injury to the maximum.

“Getting hurt is contrary to the principles of better use of energy and mutual prosperity – said Katanishi – judo is not a street struggle and for this, it is necessary to have the responsibility for oneself and for the partner”.

Corrado Croceri also spoke about this with a lesson focused on the correct practice of Randori, the main exercise of judo that allows to progress through the free study, unfortunately often confused with competition. “The randori must be opened, according to the principle of mutual concessions – said Croceri – it is important to learn accepting the attacks of the partner and turn them into opportunities. Defending oneself by blocking and moving away means not allowing the study, it means not respecting the partner. The teacher must transmit this knowledge to the students.”.

Croceri also invited the participants to pay attention to the correct position and the importance of the movements, avoiding to force the techniques at all costs with the consequence of endangering Uke’s safety.

On Tuesday, the stage was for the Yves Cadot conference according the “Mondō” modality, the comparison between students and teachers through questions and answers.

Wednesday afternoon, a delegation visited the Dojo Kenshiro Abbe in Corridonia. The particularity of this dojo is the look set up by the Master Croceri, that follows the traditional atmospheres of Japan.

“A real museum” some of the participants said.

Restano ancora due giorni di scoperta del vasto panorama del judo con una seconda conferenza di Yves Cadot questa volta con la forma del “Koji”, ovvero la corso magistrale.
