Judo to school project thrills Lagos pupils


From the secondary school to the primary schools in Lagos State, the Lagos State Judo Association (LSJA) Judo to School project continued to be embraced across all boards, as pupils from primary schools in Education District One were thrilled with the exercise.27 primary schools from the district converged at Ajenifuja Primary School in Ilupeju area of Lagos to watch live demonstration of judo under the supervision of judo coaches from the Lagos State Sports Commission (LSSC).LSJA chairman, Sheriff Hammed was also present to inspire the pupils to embrace the sports as a way of building their confidence and self-defense when the need arises.Blessing John of Ansar-ud-Deen Primary School could not hide her passion for the sport after watching the demonstration by some young judokas. “I found it interesting because it is one sport that can be used for self-defense and if one imbibes the values explained by the coaches, it can also help us in everything we are doing. I would love to join the judo club and compete in the inter-schools tournament,” the primary six pupil said.Like John, Annabel Kenneth of Sokunbi Primary School, believes the sport would help her to guide herself against bullying. “I learnt that judo is for safety and we can use it anytime we are in danger. Like if a building is on fire and we want to jump out, we learnt how to jump on the side for safety. I also learnt that we can use it for self-defense if someone attacks us.”
