‘Significance of these competitions is great, as they`re not just national championships but also a qualifier for the whole series of international tournaments, such as the World SAMBO Cup, SAMBO Championships of Asia and the World SAMBO Championships. The winners would secure a berth at those competitions,’ claimed Nobuyuki Asai, Chairman of the Executive Committee of the SAMBO Championships of Japan and member of the Executive Committee of the International SAMBO Federation, in his interview to the RIA Novosti news agency.

According to his words, over 100 male and female athletes had taken part in the competitions. To recap, the idea to stage a SAMBO tournament in Japan was conceived in 2010, in the course of the meeting of Vladimir Putin with President of the International SAMBO Federation Vasily Shestakov and a prominent judoka Yasuhiro Yamashita who was heading a non-commercial organization, known as ‘Solidarity For International SAMBO Education’.

‘Japan SAMBO Championships have been held for the 44th time, while the athletes have competed for the Russian President Cup for the sixth time. We think it plays an important role in the development of friendship and good-neighbor relations between our countries,’ noted Nobuyuki Asai.
