History of FIJLKAM

Constitution

The Federazione Atletica Italiana (FAI or Italian Athletics Federation) was established in Milan on 18 January 1902, under the initiative of Marquis Luigi Monticelli Obizzi (1863-1946), for the purpose of "coordinating wrestling and weight lifting activities". Judo was included in the Federation in 1954, although already in 1931 FAI had, on an experimental basis incorporated the Italian Jujitsu Federation (founded in 1924).

On 19 May 1974 FIAP’s Assembly established equal administrative weight of its three competitive sectors, changing the name to Federazione Italiana Lotta Pesi Judo (FILPJ or Italian Wrestling Weightlifting Judo Federation). The change of name was ratified by CONI on 6 September 1974. On 2 July 1994 the Extraordinary AGM established the incorporation of the Karate discipline into the Federation (previously included in the Italian Taekwondo Karate Federation), a decision that was ratified by the CONI National Board on 7 February 1995. The Federation is listed in Law no. 426 of 16/2/1942 (as FIAP). With the approval of the new Statute (Ostia, 1 July 2000), ratified for sports purposes by the CONI National Board on 31 October 2000. The following activities also changed: the Weightlifting section founded an independent Federation (Federazione Italiana Pesistica e Cultura Fisica – FIPCF or Italian Weightlifting and Bodybuilding Federation), whereas the Martial Arts section with Judo, Wrestling and Karate, took on greater importance characterising FIJLKAM as a federation of fighting sports.
