Judo Qualification

Qualification Summary

Each National Olympic Committee can enter a maximum of 14 athletes (7 men and 7 women) with a maximum of one athlete per each individual event. As hosts, Japan was given the maximum quota while 20 quotas will be decided by the Tripartite Commission. The remaining quotas will be decided through the World Ranking List released on May 25th 2020. The top 18 eligible athletes will qualify in each weight class. Should multiple athletes be ranked in the top 18 the nation will have the ability to choose which athlete will compete.

In addition, the World Ranking List will be divided by continent and the highest ranked eligible athletes not yet qualified, regardless of event will also qualify. The quotas for each continent are as follows:
* Africa – 24 (12 men, 12 women)
* Asia – 20 (10 men, 10 women)
* Europe – 25 (13 men, 12 women)
* Oceania – 10 (5 men, 5 women)
* Pan America – (10 men, 11 women)
A nation can only qualify one quota through this method. Unused quotas will go to the highest ranked eligible athlete regardless of continent.

Nations can qualify in the mixed team event by qualifying at least one athlete in each of the six weight classes:
* Men’s -73kg (-60kg, -66kg, -73kg)
* Men’s -90kg (-73kg, -81kg, -90kg)
* Men’s +90kg (-90kg, -100kg, +100kg)
* Women’s -57kg (-48kg, -52kg, -57kg)
* Women’s -70kg (-57kg, -63kg, -70kg)
