“The education cannot be considered accomplished if it doesn`t include practice. For this purpose, referees who took theoretical and practical tests, will be appointed to judge in local, regional and national competitions in accordance with received categories”, -  emphasized Dalil Skalli.

According to him, referees, who will pass the tests of African Sambo Confederation, will be invited to work at the African Championship.
