What is Judo?
AN OLYMPIC SPORT THAT TEACHES DISCIPLINE
Judo is an Olympic sport that is popular with millions of people around the world. Founded by Jigoro Kano in 1882, judo translates as 'the gentle way'. Judo is a great way to stay physically fit and to improve mental strength. It can help children to develop self-confidence and self-esteem and it is more than just sport. It is a way of life.
At the core of Judo is a commitment to respect and honour. “Maximum efficiency with minimum effort and mutual welfare and benefit” is a key principle of the sport – not only should students learn to use as little effort as possible to throw their opponent, they should also use the self-discipline and mental strength that judo teaches to contribute to their local community.
