The theme for World Judo Day in 2023 is BRING A FRIEND. This year, we asked you to 'bring a friend' to join you on the tatami, where the dojo represents a secure place in which we can express ourselves freely. By inviting a friend, you demonstrate that judo is a sport but above all that it represents a way of life that we are ready to share with as many people as possible. Judo is based on the principle of mutual aid and prosperity (Jita kyoei). This is what we need today! Friendship, which is at the heart of World Judo Day in 2023, is a fundamental value of understanding between people.
