Judo for kids


Judo is a Japanese martial art and sport created by Jigoro Kano in the late 19th century. It’s known as “the gentle way” because it emphasizes using an opponent’s strength against them. Judoka use throws, joint locks, and pins to control and defeat opponents, with the goal of throwing them forcefully onto their back or immobilizing them on the ground. Judo promotes physical fitness, mental discipline, respect, and sportsmanship. It’s not just about fighting but also about personal development and living by important values.
