JUDO INITIATION AS A REWARD

The class 6EM1 of the Sint-Michiels college in Schoten raised most of the funds during the school year 2017-2018. These students received as a reward a judo initiation kindly offered by our Godmother Gella Vandecaveye. Two school hours on a Wednesday morning never went by so fast! As ex-judoka (6th dan!), Gella taught these pupils, in an instructive and fun way, some judo terms such as Rei, Hajime, Matte, etc. Lots of laughter, quite tough warm-up exercises and a couple of judo grips made this unprecedented team activity unforgettable. The icing on the cake, as extra surprise, was that everyone could pass on Gella's two Olympic medals around their neck.
