About The Sport: Judo

Considered a relatively new discipline on the Olympic stage, dating back to 1964, Judo pits two individual athletes against each in a combative contest of tactical positioning, strength and control. 

Judo Australia has the broader remit to develop and promote the sport of Judo in Australia, including the delivery of National events, Performance Pathway programs and participation growth initiatives.
