About the American Judo Development Model

The American Judo Alliance, consisting of the United States Judo Federation, the United States Judo Association, and USA Judo is proud to present the launch of the American Judo Development Model (AJDM); a pathway to human and Judo excellence that is two-fold: age-based and skill-based.

AJDM Letter to Members

This is a first-ever collaborative development model endorsed by all three organizations to benefit athletes, coaches, dojo owners, parents and referees. While the AJDM has great information at its launch, this program will be ever-evolving with additional and refined information over time.

Special thanks to the AJA Presidents and AJDM Task Forces for their hard work over the last couple of years!

More information about the AJDM, including an on-line course and various resources for athletes, coaches and parents, can be found on the AJDM Website.
