Former Olympian Abdelkader Zrouri is trying to put something back into the community he was brought up in.
Zrouri rose to fame in Morocco when he represented his country in the Beijing Olympics in the 80kg category in Taekwondo, reaching the quarter finals.
Now the 39-year old is back in his home town of Oujda aiming to promote the sport.
Zrouiri invested his own money to finance this two-day event to allow local fighters to get experience from international athletes.
The aim he says is to allow these enthusiastic fighters to express themselves and hopefully make Olympics qualification.
