“On July 12th, 1951 nine countries met in a private room at Choy’s Chinese restaurant in London to form the International Judo Federation. It was an historic moment for judo, demonstrating that an Eastern combat method had become a modern international sport. This was the beginning of the world judo movement, the start of the world judo championships, and a key step leading to the inclusion of judo in the Olympic programme.”

There are 57 contestants from 25 countries, Anton GEESINK of Holland won. He won his first world title in Paris, throwing the reigning champion Sone Koji (1929-), with SOTOMAKI-KOMI, then TANI-OTOSHI, and finally holding him with MUNE-GATAME This was a big trauma for Japanese JUDO. For the first time with a non-Japanese as World Champion. The INTERNATIONAL JUDO FEDERATION quickly agreed to introduce four separate weight classes in the future World Championships.

1965 WORLD JUDO CHAMPIONSHIPS

RIO DE JANERIO, BRAZIL

OCT. 14-17

Three weight classes were implemented for the first time with the addition of the -68 kg, -80 kg, and +80 kg categories. At this World Championship the Japanese had such confidence in INOKUMA Isao that they entered him into Open division. It was their expectation that he would meet the legendary Dutch giant Anton GEESINK who a year earlier had taken the Olympic Openweight title shattering the Japanese dream of all four gold medals on their home soil. GEESINK was very skilful and 40 kgs heavier than INOKUMA but after winning the heavyweight title the previous day and only just defeating both Japanese fighters, Sakaguchi and Matsuoka. GEESINK surprised the world and announced his retirement. INOKUMA was left with a much easier task and emerged as the Openweight World Champion.
