Objective: To reveal the understanding among judo coaches from different countries on anti-doping, and their understanding of how this is intrinsically valuable to sport. Design: Survey study. Participants: 74 British coaches (UK coaches) and 66 Japanese coaches (JPN coaches) certified by the British Judo Association or the All Japan Judo Federation, as appropriate. Results: Most of both countries' coaches knew National Anti-Doping Organization and World Anti-Doping Agency. Almost of JPN coaches had attended an anti-doping workshop, however many of UK coaches had never attended such a workshop. There are aimed to compare the two countries’ views of doping along the social, educational, ethical, and health-related aspects. The results from Question 7.1 (I agree with the act of doping), Question 7.6 (Doping enables judoka to improve their performance), and Question 7.9 (Prohibited substances are possibly included in certain legal medicines and food supplements) were significantly different between the UK coaches and JPN coaches groups. Conclusions: Judo coaches around the world should be educated on anti-doping regimes.
