Over the past few months, our President, Dr. Richard Briggs has been compiling our history from the inception of the NIJF to the present day.

Dr. Richard Briggs, NIJF President and Historian

His work chronicles events, competition and event successes, the personalities involved and the stories that come from them.

This is an ongoing chronicle and now Richard would like to hear from you.

The structure of our history is in place, and it needs more personal accounts.

If you would like to add anything to the chronicle, feel something has been missed, or have ideas for anything that would be featured, please contact Richard at rpbjudo@hotmail.com

We are especially keen to get pictures that we can use in the publication.

As 2022 will see 70 years of Northern Ireland Judo, we will be publishing the paper on our new website to showcase the foundations we have in place, as we build towards the future of Judo and the Federation.
