The International Judo Federation recently announced the 2nd Annual World Judo Day. This annual day of awareness about judo and its values is held yearly on October 28th which coincides with Jigoro Kano’s birthday.
This year the IJF has chosen “JUDO FOR ALL” as the main theme.
“Wherever one comes from, whatever the social situation, the gender, the physical or mental capacities may be, everybody steps on the mat with equal chances and without any differences. This is symbolized by the white judogi that we all wear during our judo clinics and that help our partners to practice good judo.”
Marius L. Vizer, IJF President
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.
