Judo Australia (JA) have partnered with the Australian Sports Foundation (ASF) to enable tax deductible contributions to be made to the Tokyo 2020 Qualification Fund. Through the ASF's Deductible Gift Recipient status, all donations over $2 made to this project are tax-deductible.

Judo is returning home for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. Judo is a challenging and dynamic Olympic sport that demands both physical prowess and great mental discipline.

Judo Australia has a national High Performance Program which delivers elite level athletes, competing at the highest international level. Our elite athletes and national coaching staff work extremely hard to achieve success at the Olympics, World Championships, Commonwealth Games and the elite IJF World Tour events held every year.

Our athletes are currently working even harder and travelling around the world competing at these international events as they seek to qualify for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. Our international athletes are primarily self-funded and dedicate themselves to full-time training and competition.


The Judo Australia 'Tokyo 2020 Qualification' Fund will provide our Australian athletes with additional support to travel, train and compete at qualifying events around the world and have the best chance to qualify for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. 

Judo Australia is very grateful for any support that you can provide to our funding projects. Without contributions from donors like you, we won’t have the chance to thrive, grow, compete and be as successful as we can be! The future can be bigger and brighter for Judo in Australia with your help.


Please donate today!
