Alex Bezzina presented the red and white belt of Maestro Monti

Maestro Alfredo Monti, 8th Dan, European Champion, several times National Champion, and honorary member of the Malta Judo Federation returned to Malta to hold a Training Camp with the Cadet and Senior National Teams, including Francesco Aufieri who is preparing for the Youth Olympic Games. Monti had spent some years coaching our teams in Malta and had also accompanied Marcon Bezzina to the Olympic Games in Athens in 2004. During his stay, Monti also held a coaching update with the Maltese Judo coaches. At the closing of this seminar, the Malta Judo Federation Sports Director was taken by surprise by Monti when the latter stated that as a show of respect to the Maltese Sports Director and friend, he presented his own red and white belt to Bezzina. This Obi (belt) was presented to Monti by his teacher, Otani.  Alex Bezzina is 6th Dan (red and white belt).
