Education, respect and perseverance
The International Judo Federation is organizing World Judo Day, for the third year in a row. It is held on October 28, the birth anniversary of Master Jigoro Kano, who created judo in 1882.
Federation president Marius Vizer says in a message on the IJF’s website, “Master Jigoro Kano wanted to create a means of education and he did it. This is the foundation of our discipline.”
This year the theme of World Judo Day is Perseverance. Today, more than 20 million people practise judo around the world. The IJF has 200 national member federations and five continental unions.
