The socialization was in the form of roadshows to a number of major cities in Indonesia by demonstrating a number of moves performed by Yongmoodo athletes. The existence of the Yongmoodo Sports at the XVII Porprov Sinjai Bulukumba 2022 which was held at the Sinjai youth building caught the attention of the enthusiastic public watching the match. In order to maximize the Yongmoodo match, a reliable and professional referee is needed to oversee the match.
