The Saudi Arabia Judo Federation is a new federation with a new leadership. They are facing several challenges at different levels to develop judo and catch up with the International level. As part of their vision for the future, they are focusing on the youth. They have realised that to develop judo further they have to invest in the younger generation. Thus the Judo in Schools programme is a way to support that vision. Judo in schools has now started in the capital Riyadh. The success of the schools participating initially will help the federation to upscale the Judo In Schools programme in Riyadh and in the rest of KSA.
