The International calendar of the Malta Judo Federation came to an end this weekend, with a refereeing update by International Referee Dr Katalin Fridrich.

Dr Fridrich is an ex member of the Hungarian National Team, and is now one of the top 50 referees in the International Judo Federation. She has refereed in all classes of European Championships, Grand Prix and Grand Slam.

As part of the preparation for the Games of Small States of Europe in Iceland, and other International Events, the Malta Judo Federation invited Dr Fridrich to attend National Team Training, and give refereeing advice to each and every team member, depending on their style and tactics. 

Together with the senior and junior national teams, the coaches Alex Bezzina and Lamberto Raffi made maximum benefit of Dr Fridrich’s visit.

In between sessions, Dr Fridrich also gave a seminar to the National Judo Referees, going through all the recent updates in the refereeing world. 

Since Dr Fridrich is an active referee in the Judo World Tour, she could update our referees with the latest information in refereeing. Having our National Referees up to date with International Rules is of benefit to all Judoka in Malta.
