We did it again- after three long years of inactivity because of the worldwide pandemic we finally managed to organise our Ben van der Eng Memorial tournament, and what a tournament it was! Guests from England, Wales, Belgium, Israel, USA, Slovenia, Romania, French Polynesia and of course a lot from The Netherlands!
After the pilot of the Randori system in 2019 we finally rolled it out officially, with a 90-second match duration, and to great delight of the competitors. We were also happy to porganise the SNWJG once again, and SNWJG KATA on Saturday afternoon. On Sunday the BENG! tournament exploded, where we celebrate judo and winning comes second.
