Welcome to the website of Judo For all UK
This is the official website of Judo For All UK (JFAUK), a new organisation established in order to champion and promote Traditional Kodokan Judo, in Britain.
The event is jointly organized by the Federation of Traditional Judo of Italy (FIJT) and Judo For All UK (JFAUK) under the auspices of World Judo Federation (WJF) that has enshrined the very concepts of Traditional Kodokan judo and “judo for all” in its founding documents.
The seminars, courses, and the contests planned by the organizing committee will be conducted under the guidance and recommendations of the European Technical Committee of the World Judo Federation and in adherence to the concepts of Traditional Kodokan Judo.
The organizing committee invites all members of WJF and other judo formations supportive of the principals laid down by Professor Jigoro Kano to join us in Gerenzano (Varese), Italy in November 2013 and to participate in our common initiative to revive and reinvigorate judo and the best that it can offer to all.
The JFAUK Junior National Championships held on the 28th April, 2013 at the Sobell Leisure Centre, in London, was very well attended and proved to be yet again very successful.

Dear members of JFAUK and all our friends in judo
Please take time to read our annual 2012 report as a source of information and a guide.
With the arrival of the New Year and the end of 2012, we at JFAUK are completing the second year of our mutual journey to rebuild a platform for the development and advance of traditional Kodokan Judo, in Britain. We take this opportunity to provide an assessment of our collective work and achievements so far, to thank all those who have contributed to our project during the past two years and also to re-evaluate and chart our path for future.
JFAUK would like to thank everyone who attended the first JFAUK National competition on Sunday the 7th Oct 2012. The tournament war structured around the new JFAUK traditional Kodokan judo contest rules.
All the 130 contestants embraced the traditional rules with no difficulty achieving Wazari and Ippon scores only. The JFAUK nationals were very successful in laying a strong foundations for the promotion of upright, cleaner and skilful judo. Seeing contestants taking hold of each other within three seconds and immediately engaging in judo was well rewarded with some outstanding Ippon throwing.
The JFAUK aims to put to practice the concept of mutual respect and adherence to the traditions and teachings of judo building its organisation firmly based on these fundamental principals.
The JFAUK aims to help judo grow by removing all bureaucratic intrusions on the day to day running of judo clubs.
Further we aim to put all our resources to provide all that is necessary to revitalise judo and help its clubs to grow.
We recognise that all JFAUK members and officers must strictly uphold the judo code of conduct and set a good example for all to follow.
We plan to hold master classes across the UK and also provide detailed teaching tools for instructors and students alike.
All techniques required for each grading syllabus, are presented in video form for reference. These can be downloaded and used as reference in between training sessions.
Judo for all UK believes success lies in the process of development and considers that every member of JFA UK is a student and also a teacher with learning taking principal place through out the process.
The student is thus responsible to learn not just for one’s own sake but also in order teach others.
The instructors must also learn how to teach to people of diverse abilities, from different perspectives and also continue to advance their own levels.
Teaching and learning are inseparable components in the process of sharpening one’s ability to learn how to learn. Tteacher/students with higher grades are able to appreciate even finer subtlties in things, often over looked in earlier periods.
