The 46th Japan SAMBO Championships for the Cup of Russian President Vladimir Putin was held in Tokyo. About 100 athletes from different regions of the Japanese archipelago took part in the competition. The best of them will go to Moscow at the end of March to compete for the World SAMBO Cup “Kharlampiev Memorial".

As the chairman of the organizing committee of the championship Nobuyuki Asai emphasized, strong friendship between the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin and the famous Japanese judoka, and now the chairman of the Japanese Olympic Committee (JOC) Yasuhiro Yamashita, gave a serious impetus to the development of SAMBO.

The idea of ​​holding SAMBO competitions in Japan was born about ten years ago. A powerful impetus to the development of this sport in the island state was given by the success of Japanese sambists at the Summer Universiade in Kazan in 2013, who brought home five medals.

Chairman of the organizing committee of the championship Nobuyuki Asai noted that in Japan, SAMBO is developing steadily. At the same time as adults, competitions are held at the junior level. So, last year, a SAMBO federation was created in the Kansai region on the island of Honshu. “I hope that next year Kansai will introduce a strong team. I believe in it,” Nobuyuki Asai summed up.
