The above names, in whatever way, make our project understood and which is aimed at Technical teams and Black Belts whose aim is to take Judo even further.

The objective was and is still that of understanding the Technical, Didactic and Teaching issues as well as Historic ones where the writings of its founder, J.Kano (1860 – 1983), somehow represent the outline.

In this 24th edition of the TRE TORRI, we propose one of our most renowned Judo experts, a friend, we are talking about Alfredo Vismara 8th Dan, a name, a guarantee for his technical and didactic qualities, his teaching qualities.

Alfredo Vismara authentic scholar of Judo, he is presently very committed in proposing Judo as educational sport, he holds an important role in the context of the Regional Sports Council in the Regione Lombardia.

His dedication to the: ”JI TA KYOEI International Educational Standards Project” for the benefit of Judo, and all martial arts instructors generally, aims for recognition of us as Social Educators, both on a National and International level.
