The event, which will take place next Saturday 21 at the CETD Villaviciosa de Odón, is organized by the Madrid Judo, Karate and Wrestling Federations, with the support of the Community of Madrid. The objective of this initiative is to promote a safe and healthy sport practice, transmit the values of health and hygiene in sport, as well as make these disciplines visible.
The official presentation of the event took place at the Wizink Center and had the participation of the Deputy Minister of Sports of the Community of Madrid, Roberto Núñez. During his speech, Núñez highlighted the “example in the development and compliance with the COVID protocols” of the federations and the need to “promote the practice of safe, healthy, healthy sport with values”.
In addition, Núñez wanted to highlight the work carried out by the three organizing federations of the event to “put sport into practice in a safe and healthy way at a time as complicated as the one we are experiencing.” Judo, karate and wrestling, said the deputy counselor, “are sports that excellently show that competition and sport can be perfectly complemented with values.”
In this first day of exhibition, the organizing federations, in addition to encouraging the practice of their disciplines and demonstrating how to play sports safely, will present a work decalogue. In it they bet on safe, healthy, healthy sports practice with values; promoting effort, dedication and dedication; respect for fair play, tolerance and respect for the rules; the fight against discrimination, or knowing how to accept defeat with honor and learn from it.
Practice safe sports
In this line, the regional Executive launched last October an institutional campaign to promote sport under the slogan Get active, play safe sports. Through this initiative, Madrilenians were encouraged to combat sedentary lifestyles and promote healthy lifestyles through safe physical exercise, and with scrupulous respect for current safety regulations.
