In Memoriam: Aad van der Kooij

We were saddened to learn of the passing of our Honorary Member Aad van der Kooij on Sunday, March 6, 2022. Aad was 79 years old.

Aad was active as a volunteer almost from the start of our association, as a judo teacher and as a referee at national level. At an advanced age, he contributed to setting up our Move Confidentaly classes for the elderly and the group of Adapted judo, with whom he had a special connection. Aad will be missed by his fellow judokas and students.

The funeral took place privately.
