Within the International Judo Federation, we created the IJF Academy, with the aim of educating coaches, help former judokas continue their path in our sport as coaches. The Academy is an important tool that helps us spread the knowledge and values of judo all over the world, including countries with less tradition and experience in our sport, but with a great potential and desire to develop judo.
