The International Judo Federation recently announced the creation of a World Judo Day. This annual day of awareness about judo and its values will be held yearly on October 28th which coincides with Jigoro Kano’s birthday.
The goal of the day is to promote the values that grow naturally in the dojo and on the mat and to promote the need for these values to find a favorable echo in everyday life and beyond that, in the society.
The IJF choose the value of RESPECT as the main theme of the first World Judo Day. Judo BC members are encouraged to participate in this year’s World Judo Day by visiting the World Judo Day website for ideas and resources.
