A crazy plan to some, an ambitious project to others, reckless or brave!!! An idea that first went through my mind in 1996, on the day that I got my black belt: the desire to travel and explore the world, club by club, dojo by dojo, practising judo as I went! Reaching out to others, learning about their culture, their environment, sharing with them this same passion for the effort and the values and principles devised by the founder of this martial art and educational system! This dream of every judoka, this extraordinary personal adventure, from 14 September 2015 to 12 July 2017, I did it! In all humility, I swapped my status as a teacher for that of a student! I went and I managed to take part in training in 41 countries, a symbolic number representing my age when I finished my intense, eventful, moving and challenging journey!

When I set out, I wasn’t in the most positive frame of mind.

I had never been a very great judoka recognised for competition results. I dreaded what I was heading towards. My mother was crying in the kitchen and my father clumsily hid his emotion behind his camera for an ultimate goodbye snapshot.

And me, I was there, masking my anxiety with an unwavering desire to launch into my adventure. I tried to do it. I started. I took my first steps, the first few feet of an uncertain journey, but one that I was convinced would change my life.
