Japan are aiming for a clean sweep in the Mens categories. Can David Douillet (FRA) or Fank Moller (GER) stops Nayoya Ogawa (JPN) from climing yet another world title? Will Pavel Nastula (POL) continue to dominate the -95kgs? Will Hidehiko Yoshida (JPN) sweep all before him in the -86kgs or will the man that beat him in the '93 Worlds, Jeon of Korea, repeat the feat?
In the womens categories Angelique Seriese (NED) is aiming to add the World to her European title as +72kgs whilst Ulla Werbrouck (BEL) faces Yoko Tanabe (JPN) making her comeback at -72kgs and the dynamic Castellano from Cuba. At -66kgs the defending World Champion Cho (KOR) is in tremendous form whilst Jenny Gal (NED) is up agianst another of the strong Koreans, Jung in the -61s.
But the climax of the tournament id the return to the Worlds stage of the legendary Toshihiko Koga (JPN) fighting at the new wight of -78kgs. With the whole of Japan behind him Koga sets the stadium alight and makes this tape a must for all Judo enthusiasts.
