Today, history was made with the signing of the first-ever American Judo Alliance Agreement between the United States Judo Association (USJA), United States Judo Federation (USJF) and United States Judo, Inc. (USA Judo). This new agreement paves the way for the three organizations to work together with the focus of growing the sport of judo in the United States.
Welcome to the world’s greatest collection of martial arts stamps, coins, and phone cards! Most of these items concern judo. Without a single recorded injury, judo stamp collecting has to be the safest judo-related activity of all, safer even than kata judging and refereeing. http://www.judostamps.org
Over the last 3 years the USJA has supported athletes of all levels. We have given money to competitors and referees to help get them to competitions and training camps!
We are a nonprofit organization and we thrive on supporting our members at all levels. This month we are asking for your help. Please donate to the USJA athlete fund to help our elite, our future champions and our referees accomplish their goals!
We thank you in advance for supporting our USJA Judo family.
