Following up from the successful Ilias Iliadis Masterclass in January 2017, Palavani Judo Club welcomes the new year with the 2018 GEORGII ZANTARAIA MASTERCLASS. This is another high quality, high level masterclass where participants will be presented with the opportunity to witness, learn and practice the techniques used at the top level of Judo. The masterclass will provide a deep insight into attack and defence tactics, adaptation to new rules, interactive analysis and demonstration by the top Judoka Georgii Zantaraia who will be joined by the 4 times European Teams Champion, 2017 Paris and Ekaterinburg Grand Slam Medalist, Zebeda Rekhviashvili.

Who is the masterclass directed to?
The masterclass is directed to athletes aged 10 and above who are already practicing Judo and are looking to advance their skills. Kids and adults are naturally separated on the mat. All Associations are welcome; participants must provide a current membership licence.

What is the masterclass trying to achieve?
This is not a performance exhibition. Georgii and Zebeda will not be in the middle demonstrating numerous techniques they are using during the fights to amuse the participants. Instead, they will break down techniques throughout the day and analyze them from start to finish. The participants will be required to work specifically on those techniques and practice them under Georgii’s supervision.

What is the overall purpose?
Education. Georgii and Zebeda will be actively involved in showing, explaining and correcting the participants during their practice. The exercises will be followed by a Question and Answer section where participants can discuss with Georgii anything they would like to know.
