Message from the IJF President

Dear friends, judoka, delegations,

Welcome to Tokyo, the home of judo. It is already a year since we last met in Japan and anticipating our arrival at the Tokyo Grand Slam is, for all of us, like preparing to go home after a long time away.

The staging of the Tokyo Grand Slam is always a promise of the strongest Japanese team, with the desire to win on home ground. This attracts our biggest and brightest stars from the rest of the world and creates an environment in which the most skilled judo thrives.

The organisers are among the world’s best, always creating the best conditions for the greatest judo and all with the maximum level of respect and professionalism, applying the core judo values at every moment. This is the correct way as we continue our preparations towards Paris 2024. The Olympic Games is only months away and in Tokyo, with 100% of points won counting towards qualification, we can expect intensity, precision and a high energy competition.

I wish all members of the judo family a successful visit to our historical home and thank you for your continued, invaluable support. 

Yours in judo,

Mr Marius L. Vizer

President International Judo Federation
