Anti-doping

The IAF shares the anti-doping commitment of the sports world, according to the directives of WADA, the World Anti-Doping Agency. For the IAF Anti-Doping Policy and Rules, see the links below to these documents.

Here are links to some essential WADA information about anti-doping and how this work is done:

 

TUE, Therapeutic Use Exemption

 

For aikido seminars, public demonstrations, and dan examinations, a Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE) for the use of Prohibited Substance (s) and Method (s) in relation to a medical condition, may be required.

 

Please consult your  the National Anti-Doping Organization (NADO) for specifics about these rules.

 

For IAF events, if you don’t have already a TUE from your NADO, please contact the IAF at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Nutritional Supplements

WADA and other anti-doping organizations have found good reason to warn against the use of dietary and nutritional supplements. They may contain substances that are classified as doping, even when this is not specified on the supplement's list of ingredients.

Here is a short informational document on the subject from WADA:

WADA, the World Anti-Doping Agency, has informed us that IAF is now approved as compliant with the WADA anti-doping code, which stipulates certain activities and procedures as part of the world-wide work against doping in sports.

The IAF anti-doping commitment started with the unanimous decisions of the 2008 IAF General Assembly to approve the Directing Committee proposals for an IAF Anti-doping policy and the IAF Anti-doping Regulations. Since then, the DC has worked closely with WADA representatives and anti-doping experts of SportAccord to establish routines and activities for the anti-doping work within Aikido.

For aikido seminars, public demonstrations, and dan examinations, the WADA rules on TUE (Therapeutic Use Exemption) may apply. Please consult the national anti-doping organization of the event in question, for specifics about these rules.

For IAF events, if the national anti-doping organization doesn't clarify your situation, please contact the IAF.

Future IAF events where TUE applies:
2012: IAF International Seminar and Aikido Demonstrations, Tokyo, September
2013: Combat Games, S:t Petersburg, October
Other events may be added to the list.

Here you find the IAF Anti-Doping Policy and Rules, which were adapted by the 2008 General Assembly.

The rules and policy are based on WADA (World Anti-Doping Agency) rules and policies.
