When Arjan Spannenburg started making photos as a profession, he really enjoyed doing his own projects. Via Facebook he got in touch with Sportschool Goederaad in Bodegraven (The Netherlands). They where looking for a photographer, while he was looking for inspiration and people to work with.
He was welcomed to their Judo Tournament, where he found the inspiration to make a small book about Judo. During this tournament he saw many aspects that are important elements for a child when growing up. These life lessons where collected in images and quotes and formed a little booklet named "Judo is a metaphor for life".
