Lagos judo organises seminar for women
The Lagos State Judo Association (LSJA) will today hold a one-day seminar cum enlightenment programme for girls in the state as part of the efforts to popularise the sport.
According to the chairman of LSJA, Sheriff Hammed, the essence of the seminar is to promote self-defense among women in the state.
“With the spate of rape, robbery, kidnappings, and general violence against women, the Lagos State Judo Association has partnered with the Tinubu Support Organisation (TSO) Lagos Chapter to raise awareness of rape in our society and promote self-defence amongst the youth by engaging them in judo. It is hoped that this programme will help protect our loved ones and provide an effective remedy against the security malaise afflicting our society,” Hammed said.
The event will hold at Mobolaji Johnson Sports Complex, Rowe Park.
Apart from the self-defense skills to be acquired by participants, the event is aimed at unearthing talents for the state in judo, as well as providing a platform for youth to engage in meaningful activities.
