IPPON film screening

An international phenomenon established by a 21-year-old Japanese student, Judo has crafted a unique legacy within self-defence, Mixed Martial Arts and the Olympic Games.

IPPON is a documentary by Sandro, a human biology student at Stanford University passionate about health education. It is a fascinating exploration into the secrets of judo by synthesizing culture, science and nutrition, and promoting health and well-being in communities around the world.

Taking place in California and Japan, it features exclusive interviews with judo pioneers like 3x U.S. National Champion and author Hayward Nishioka, MMA personalities such as Justin Flores and world-class athletes like U.S. Olympian and National Champion Celita Schutz.
