The World Judo Day initiated by the International Judo Federation aims to promote the values of our sport as the y have been designed from its inception. With the launch of this event, the IJF also wants to eventually come closer to the people who make judo alive on a daily basis in all the dojo around the world.


The objective is to promote a global awareness on the values of judo and its education system to all judo clubs and judoka, through the Member Federations and with the help of the modern communication tools (website of the IFJ, social networks). This year's theme: "RESPECT". Judo clubs will be asked to take action "in" and "outside" of their club.

IJF President Marius Vizer, right, said: "The International Judo Federation in its missions has the duty to develop judo in all sectors. When Master Jigoro Kano created judo in 1882, he wanted to create a means of education and he did it. This is the foundation of our discipline. Nowadays, I want this dimension to be better known by all the judoka and generally speaking by everybody.

"Our discipline has values that grow naturally in the dojo and on the mat, particularly through the various exercises that all of us have learned in our club. These values must of course find a favourable echo in everyday life and beyond that, in the society.

"October 28, the birthday of Jigoro Kano, will from now on be an annual day of awareness about judo and its values. This day will be the one of all the judoka. I wish that all practitioners, clubs, national federations and Continental Unions rally to highlight the greatness of judo.

"This year the value of respect was chosen as the main theme of the first World Judo Day.

But this worldwide action is not limited only to a single day, now we need to work to ensure its success and I count on you to be efficient relays.

"With all my friendship and respect for the work undertaken on a daily basis in all the dojos around the world.”

A specific website (www.worldjudoday.com) has been created, where you have the opportunity to interact with judoka from all over the world. The World Judo Day, 2011 edition (every year, this event will be organised with different themes), will be a great opportunity to develop activities in every single judo club without any kind of discrimination. It will be also a fantastic opportunity to show to the world that Judo is not simply a sport but an outstanding educational activity.
