Association president resigns after assault

Korean Judo Association President Nam Jong-Hyun resigned from the position following last week’s assault scandal.

Nam, 70, is currently accused of beating an unidentified judo official in a meeting held last Friday. He apparently threw a beer glass at the official who expressed a different opinion on revising the association’s code. The official underwent surgery to fix a broken tooth and a severe cut to his face. He later asked the police to charge Nam for the assault.

Nam first became the president of the association in April 2013. The judo association said it will hold a board meeting next Tuesday to discuss a new election.
