Message from the IJF President

Dear national federations, dear friends,

We welcome you to Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates, a city which has become a real mainstay on the World Judo Tour and now extends arms of friendship to our veteran family.

In Abu Dhabi we are promised first class hospitality amid a bustling city that boasts both state-of-the-art architecture and respect for the region’s history and cultures. The sheer scale of progression and planning are indicative of the way in which Abu Dhabi represents a forward thinking commitment to both evolution and tradition. This is aligned with our vision of judo and so returning here is natural.

Our veteran judoka enjoyed an outstanding stay in Krakow, Poland, in 2022 for their pinnacle event of the year and now move into Asia thanks to the extraordinary efforts of the local organisers. The 2023 edition of the World Championships Veterans promises to celebrate the experience, excellence and friendship which we all hold in such high esteem.

I wish all our delegations, our friends and the wider judo family a healthy and successful event, filled with the best ippon judo! Abu Dhabi welcomes you!

Yours in judo,

Mr Marius L. Vizer

President International Judo Federation
