What is the International Judo Federation?

The European Judo Union was reconstituted after World War II. On July 11, 1951 in London, its representatives (Great Britain, France, Italy, Belgium, The Netherlands, Germany, Austria and Switzerland) received the candidacy of Argentina and the International Judo Federation was created. The Italian, Aldo Torti became the first President of the IJF.

International Judo Federation (IJF) is the hub for all the national judo federation members. Today, IJF brings together more than 200 national federations and 5 continental unions. The headquarters are based in Budapest, Hungary.
