Origins of the British Judo Association, the European Judo Union, and the International Judo Federation

By Richard Bowen




Origins of the British Judo Association, the European Judo Union, and the International Judo Federation

This is an account of the creation of three judo organizations. The story starts with Koizumi Gunji who arrived in London from Japan in 1906. He played a key roll in these developments. How the organizations were formed, who was involved, and what was accomplished are presented here. In all, the account has great bearing on judo today.
