BDNJF President Haji Abdul Malik bin Haji Mohamad presented the certificates to the recipients in recognition of their contributions to coaching and promoting judo in the Sultanate.

“Since we are already in the endemic phase, we should be going forward by planing our activities from now until a period of two to five years and so,” Haji Abdul Malik said.

He also called the members to provide ideas to develop the federation, noting that it was their first in-person meeting this year.

The meeting also heard a report delivered by Secretary General Shenna Wong and also introduced Assistant Secretary General Mohd Noh bin Dato Paduka Haji Matassan.
