A young Malindi athlete will participate in Judo World Championships.
James Mashobo, 28, will be one of the flagships of his nation, thanks to his talent and will, but also thanks to the judo school of Malindi founded by the Italians of the association of "Friends of Judo".
"This is the demonstration that you can be judo full scholars, teach passion and profit and go to the world as a representative of your own nation," the former Italian champion Alfredo Vismara, one of the founders of the Malindi association, , Thanks to so many volunteer friends, he taught martial art to many Kenyan boys, and removed so many from the street.
The beautiful story of James Mashobo also begins relatively late, he is already twenty years old when he starts practicing judo at Malindi's "dojo" founded by Judo Friends.
"James has long since proven to be an important passion, always doing everything possible without losing the workouts, although in Africa for the boys of his age the first rule is to survive and keep the older members and the younger of the numerous family - says Vismara - He worked hard to improve on judo and as soon as he was ready, he became one of the teachers of our school founded 15 years ago in Malindi. "
Always thanks to the judo, James also became responsible for a company of Askari, the guards operating in the villas here on the coast to ensure security in private property.
Three years ago James was summoned for retirements with the national team and international competitions and this year he has qualified for the upcoming World Championships in Budapest. It will race in the 73 kg category.
In the lion's mouth, James!
