Dear Leader and judoka,

Currently I am looking for a country that can host the World Deaf Martial Arts Championships (Judo, Karate and Taekwondo) for the month of July or August 2012. It is not easy, I am working hard to make sure that there is a world championship event. I may be able to find a host country but am waiting for official response from an interest host before notifying you.

In organizing the World Judo Championship, I would like to establish:

  • Individual Competition Men and Women (2 judoka by category and country maximum)
  • Men's Team Event (1 team per country)
  • Competition open category for women (maximum 2 judoka by country)
  • Competition kata for men and women

I will give you more information after having the official response from a country that will host the World Deaf Martial Arts Championships.

Greetings sports,

ICSD Technical Director - Judo
