Les Jeunes Judokas
"Judo takes money, time and good nutrition."
Welcome to Judo Club Fall Ababacar, St. Louis, Senegal.
This dojo was founded by Cheikh Oumar Fall, a former member of the national and pan-African judo squads. It’s open to all local kids, including talibés – the street kids who are forced to beg for religious reasons.
So far more than 500 judokas have been trained - learning discipline, focus and respect.
Some have even competed at national level.
Oumar funds everything from his own pocket.
All equipment is donated. The space is provided by the city hall. Prints are available for sale. All proceeds go directly to the dojo.
