For the second time this year, after the Judo Grand Prix, Miami 2013, which was organized in June 2013, the IJF will gather in Florida, this time for the Cadet World Championship. The event will be of particular importance since it will be a qualifier for the Youth Olympic Games that will be held next year in Nanjing, China.







Marius L. VIZER

IJF President

The cadet age group is the first step to the very high level and many today’s judo stars, before reaching the international seniors highest level, shined when they were cadets. We are and we will be, once again, very careful that the rules and values of judo are respected.


Right after the Cadet World Championship, we will organize for all national federations, the first ‘Judo for Children’ seminar, which will allow us to launch concrete actions throughout the world. These programs will aim to give judo all its rightful place in the education of youth, allowing it to fit in the maximum school curriculum.


It belongs to me, on behalf of the whole judo family, to thank and congratulate the USA Judo Federation, for all the work undertaken within the framework of the organization of the competition and the development of judo.




It is with tremendous excitement and pride that we extend to the entire IJF family an invitation to participate in the 2013 World Cadet Championships that we will be hosting in the tropical, exotic and international city of Miami, Florida.









Mr. Lance Nading President USA Judo













Mr. Jose Humberto


Chief Executive Officer (CEO) USA Judo

We are eager to welcome the world to the United States and more specifically to Florida. Please note that we have been able to secure one of the best known resorts to be both the headquarter hotel as well as the venue for the competition. At the Doral Golf Resort & Spa, a Trump International hotel property, you will be able to sleep in a large luxurious room, and then walk a few meters to the competition and to your meals. You will find our choice of site second to no other in the world.


Due to the fact that many countries have contacted us and requested the possibility to organize a “pre-world acclimation” camp, we are pleased to announce that we will be hosting a camp for any delegation wishing to come a week earlier. We are also able to offer those wishing to travel to Orlando to visit Disney World and other attractions in Florida, a local tourist agency to arrange your visit. In short, we want to make your delegation visit to our country a very unique experience both on and off the tatami.


On behalf of our Judo family in the United States, we thank the International Judo Federation for honoring us with hosting this prestigious event. We are working hard to live up to this trust that has been bestowed on us.


We look forward to seeing you in Miami this coming August! Best of success to you all!
