Challenge at his second Paralympic Games changing the weight class Judo Judo

KITAZONO Aramitsu

Nickname:Aramitsu, Akirat

i enjoy

A game starts after gripping each other, there is no struggle for "Kumite".This makes it easier to get “Ippon” and enables to grapple firmly with each other during the match.By starting with a grip, we can practice equally with sighted persons.(Kitazono)

Strong points

My specialties are Ippon-seoi-nage (hand throwing technique) from both right and left side, Aramitsu special, and Ashi-waza (foot sweep techniques), and I am aiming to perform undefeated Judo by combining these and other techniques.
