Judo’s Paralympic run for Paris 2024 is having its final competition in 2023 in Tokyo, Japan.

As the calendar for qualification gets closer to its final stage, Judo is coming home to the birthplace of the sport.

“The IBSA Judo Grand Prix Tokyo 2023 is one of the most important competitions before the Paris Paralympics 2024, and I am sure that all judo-ka will demonstrate the result of their hard work and strive for the teachings of Kano Jigoro Shihan”, said Mr. Takeshita, president of the Japan Blind Judo Federation.
