In 2011, the IJF took the initiative to help federations worldwide to introduce more children to judo as a sport.

Among the commission members there are several former judokas with experience of organising judo programs for young people. Young people and judo is one of the top priorities of the IJF. In the future, the commission will make an effort to help all the federations to set up, support and implement judo programs for children.
