Athletes belonging to the KH Group Phillux Judo Team, including Olympic medalists Goo-Ham Jo and Chang-Rim Ahn, performed talent donation activities for the dreamers of judo in the Pohang area.

The KH Group Phillux Judo Team announced on the 11th that they had visited Dongji High School Judo Hall on the 9th and held a talent donation class to pass on core skills to Dongji Middle and High School and Dongji Girls’ Middle and High School players. On this day, the players were taught how to throw, harden, and fall, which they had demonstrated on the international stage.

The KH Group Phillux Judo Team is led by Choi Won, the national judo team leader at the 2015 Gwangju Summer Universiade, and the 2012 London Olympic champion, Song Dae-nam. The team consisted of △ Tokyo 2020 Olympic silver medalist Koo-ham △ 2020 Tokyo Olympic bronze medalist Ahn Chang-rim △ 2016 Paris Grand Slam champion Jan-di Kim △ 2017 Taipei Universiade silver medalist Jeong-yun Lee.

Cha Seung-jun (comrade Ji-go), who received the guidance, said, “I couldn’t believe I had the time to learn how to run the back heel from senior Ahn Chang-rim, whom I had only seen on TV. “He said.

The talent donation for the judo team was prepared as a handwritten letter from brothers Jae-hyeon Lee and Jae-kyung Lee, who belonged to Dongji Middle and High School. In February, KH Group provided a scholarship of 1 million won to 11 judo dreamers across the country, including two brothers, through the Korea Judo Association and the Korea Elementary, Middle, and High School Judo Federation. Brothers Lee Jae-hyeon and Jae-kyung, who received support, wrote a handwritten letter to KH Group Chairman Bae Sang-yoon saying, ‘I will train hard and grow into a good player.’

Chairman Bae plans to provide a monthly scholarship of 500,000 won each until they reach adulthood, and regularly promote talent donation so that they can receive direct training from national-level judo athletes belonging to the judo team.
