Judogi Pyramid

The world's first judogi pyramid launched at the 2011 Paris World Championships (IJF)

On first day of competition at the 2011 Paris World Championship, the first-ever pyramid of judogi was officially inaugurated by Jean-Luc Rougé, President of the French Judo Federation and new Secretary-General of the IJF.

The idea behind the judogi pyramid is very simple: Every spectator, athlete or official can bring a judogi, drop it into the pyramid and he/she will receive a 30% discount for a new judogi from Greenhill or Adidas stores in Bercy. ”

The donated judogis will then be used in judo-related social projects globally such as Judo for Peace, Judo for Children, 100 Black Belts, etc.
