The Federation announced the field for the Japanese championships which will take place on April 3 and 4 in Fukuoka.

Outside a fantastic roster in the U66kg category other amazing events will have the presence of eight of the nine Olympic Championships, an example how national championships should represent the best athletes of each country.

The Japanese Championships will include Olympic stars Uta Abe (-52kg), Shori Hamada (-78kg), Akira Sone (+78kg), Naohisa Takato (-60kg), Hifumi Abe (-66kg), Shohei Ono (-73kg), Takanori Nagase (-81kg) and Aaron Wolf (-100kg).
