Mission: We are committed to providing an opportunity to access free and accurate information about Judo. In addition to creating an online resource for the serious study of Judo, we will provide a community to support instructors, students, and others as they share, explore, and develop their understanding of Judo. We also support the development of other resources for judoka, including more web sites, books, articles, classes, special clinics, and other events.
Purpose: The purpose of the Judo Information Site is to promote Judo around the world by educating the general public and Judo students about the various benefits of Judo.
