ASJ will publish conceptual or primary research papers, that are not published elsewhere, papers that are relevant for the development of judo and giving new insights on certain aspects of judo. Inspired by reach judo heritage of Jigoro Kano, all submissions should describe and explain not only research methodology but also put emphasis on practical implications of research. Therefore, the ASJ can fulfil all its goals – to become a forum of disseminating important judo research results and to bridge the usual gap between the academic research and the needs of practical work in judo.

Deadline for submission is December 1st, 2019,

6th Annual Martial Arts Studies Conference "Martial arts, Religion and Spirituality (MARS)"


22-23 July 2020, Université d’Aix-Marseille

Focusing on the relations between martial arts, religion and spirituality, this conference aims to engage the diversity and plurality of understandings of each of these terms – ‘martial arts’, ‘religion’, ‘spirituality’ – and of their relationships.

Any scholarly approach to the analysis of martial activity in relation to religion and spirituality is welcome, but preference will be given to those that demonstrate an adequate engagement with the field of ‘martial arts studies’, an emergent interdisciplinary discourse situated at the crossroads of the social and natural sciences, arts and humanities.

The organising panel is particularly interested in proposals for papers and panels that examine, interrogate, analyse, and cast new light on the relations, overlaps, identities and differences between and across martial arts, religions and spiritualities.
