Pathways Toward Success
When your son or daughter participates in Judo through a charter club approved by the United States Judo Federation, they will have quality instruction and a positive experience which will enrich their lives as they grow and mature.
The United States Judo Federation Teachers Institute, with its long standing tradition of technical excellence in teaching and coaching is committed to serving our members with the latest information and procedures. In addition, certification in Self Defense Instruction, National refereeing and kata judging are offered.
Many dojos have had to adjust to a hybrid-remote model, a combination of in-person and virtual blended instruction. The USJF videos are available to all sensei’s and coaches. Our hope is that these videos serve as useful learning tools for your practice.
The USJF is committed in supporting the dojo/club.
Judo participation can provide the space for healthy activities and access to areas where people come together, and foster outlets for physical and mental health recovery.
USJF National Committees
Voluntary committee members are dedicated to the continuous improvement of our members and their communities by providing research, experience, education and diversity in the interest of the betterment of man-kind through the practice and study of judo.
Being the oldest Judo organization in the USA, the USJF was originally called the Judo Black Belt Federation (JBBF). It was organized around regional/local Yudanshakai (black belt associations). The purpose of the Yudanshakai is to promote judo in its own area and run local events.
