October 28, 2018 will be the ninth edition of the annual #WorldJudoDay, with the theme of ‘Plant a Tree’. USA Judo clubs across the country will host a "Try Judo for Free" day at their dojo, in celebration of Jigoro Kano's birthday.

Planet Earth is in danger. Scientists all over the world and more and more observers agree that if nothing is done, our common home, and therefore its inhabitants, us, do not have a guaranteed future. The International Judo Federation wants to participate in the common effort to provide a better future for our children.

The World Judo Day was successfully launched by the IJF in 2011 and is a great opportunity for all judokas to come together under the banner of the educational values of our sport. This is a day dedicated to coaches, fans, judoka and everyone with a passion for one of the world’s most widely practiced sports.

From October 25 – November 4, USA Judo is hosting its annual National Try Judo for Free Day in conjunction with World Judo Day. Try Judo for Free is a great opportunity for judo lovers to promote the sport in their community through activities such as demonstrations, inter-club training sessions, and ‘taster’ sessions.

 

 

There are no associated fees for participants on "Try Judo for Free" day. Plan to arrive in active wear and bring water.

Listed below are clubs participating in Try Judo for Free Day – President’s Day. Find the event nearest you.
