July 18-19, 2024

Judo Australia has opened Expressions of Interest for Senior and final year Junior players to contest the Taipei Asian Judo Open taking place at the Taipei Gymnasium on July 18 and 19.

This is an IJF event for World Ranking points, and qualifying athletes will join an official Australian delegation supported by a National Coach. The event outline is available from the IJF website, HERE.

Judo Australia is inviting Expressions of Interest from Senior and Final Year Junior judo athletes who are not currently categorised or part of the National Performance Centre program. 

Athletes selected for the event will have the opportunity to continue to Japan for a 10-day Judo Camp at the International Budo University in Katsuura

To be selected, players must be at least a 1st Dan black belt, be in the top 3 of a division on the Senior National Points Table, and have medalled at the 2023 National Championships or a National Event Series event in 2024.

To represent Australia, players must be an Australian citizen with a current Australian passport, hold a valid IJF ID Card, and be financial member of Judo Australia/its affiliates and be in good standing with JA and the Combat Institute of Australia.

This is a self-funded event and athletes will need to book and pay for their own flights.  Tournament entry and official accommodation must be booked via Judo Australia, with all costs invoiced to the athlete and payment required before departure.

To express your interest, please respond via the linked form (EOI for Taipei Open & Budo University Camp) on or before Friday June 14.
