The IJF Mourns the Passing Away of Judo Legend Luis Guardia
It is with great sadness that the international Judo family learned today about the passing away of Judo Legend Luis Guardia, at the age of 85 in his home city of Miami, USA. Mr. Luis Guardia was one of the founding members of the Pan American Judo Confederation in 1952 and on the occasion of the 65th anniversary gala of the International Judo Federation, last August in Budapest, he received from the IJF President, Mr. Marius Vizer, a Lifetime Achievement Award.
