What is JUDO

(the gentle way)

 


• ONE OF THE JUDO’S MOST ATTRACTIVE ASPECTS IS THAT IT EXPANDS THE MIND AS WELL AS TRAINS THE MUSCLES .

JUDO IS DESIGNED TO BE A SAFE SPORT , BUT YOU CAN HURT YOURSELF OR HURT SOMEONE ELSE IF YOU ARE NOT CAREFUL TO DO WHAT YOU ARE TOLD AND NO MORE THAN YOU ARE TOLD .

 

Hints On The History Of Judo


» The word Judo means { Gentle way } .     

» Ancient Jujitsu is the forerunner of Judo .  

» JIGORO KANO (1860-1939) is the founder of modern Judo . He studied the ancient Jujitsu, and in 1882 he developed his own school which he called the “ KODOKAN ” .  He named his style of JUJITSU JUDO to emphasize the way or principle, rather than the techniques themselves .

Jigoro Kano pulled from ancient Jujitsu some of the best of its throws and grappling techniques, added some of his own , and in space of a few years , changed a dying art into an exercise that emphasized moral and intellectual training as well as physical training .  

» Jujitsu emphasized roughness and dangerous bodily injury, while Kano’s Kodokan Judo taught a competitive and a relaxing sport that only incidentally was a useful art of self-defense .  Kano , deploring violence and rowdiness , founded a whole new system for physical culture and mental training .  

He developed the slogan :  “ Maximum efficiency with minimum effort, for the mutual welfare and benefit of all “ .
