JUDO WORLD TOUR, Explorer, Rencontrer et Partager à travers la passion du judo, système éducatif et sportif imaginé par Jigoro Kano, selon les principes fondamentaux (DO : voie, chemin, JITA KYOEI : entraide et prospérité mutuelle, SEIRYOKY ZENIO : bon emploi de l’énergie) et le Code Moral (sincérité, modestie, contrôle de soi, courage, honneur, amitié, respect, politesse).

JUDO WORLD TOUR, The globetrotting judoka” has been an incredible journey.

For almost two years, from September 2015 to July 2017, I had the incredible experience of practicing judo with more than 10,000 judokas in the 121 clubs I visited on my tour of 41 countries !

The travelogue I wrote about this wonderful human experience, under the principles and values of judo, was first published in French in March 2018.
Since its release, it has been a huge success in France.

I have received many comments, and a very enriching exchange with the francophone readers is ongoing, not to mention those valuable messages from many other followers who want to read the travel notebook in English, Spanish or Japanese.

To those followers who have been waiting to read this adventure in other languages, I am pleased to share some great news with you, which makes me happy :

Thanks to the support of the International Judo Federation, it is with great pleasure that I can announce the launch of the publication in English of the book «JUDO WORLD TOUR, the globe-trotting judoka» !

I want to warmly thank the President of the International Judo Federation, M. Marius L. Vizer, and his entire team, whom made the publication in English possible,

Thanks to Martine Filiptchenko, judoka and manager of the A2MS translation company, for his valuable collaboration on this project,

Thanks to my editor, Sydney Laurent Editions,

Thanks to everyone who shared and followed my two-year adventure on the world’s tatamis,

Thanks to everyone who has bought the French edition of the book and the future readers of the English edition,

Finally, I would like to thank all the clubs, committees, leagues and companies who, by inviting me to give conferences on the extraordinary adventure of JUDO WORLD TOUR, have also given me the opportunity to continue sharing the principles and values of judo.
