The way of gentleness


About Judo

Judo is a martial art created by Jigoro Kano (1860-1938) in Japan. It is based on fighting and self-defence techniques that harness the opponent's strength and energy to neutralise him. Judo focuses on the study of efficient movements, the application of biomechanical principles and the improvement of physical and mental condition. Through the practice of Judo, practitioners learn to overcome challenges, develop mutual respect and cultivate the spirit of modesty and self-discipline.


Characteristics of Judo

Judo training aims to develop physical strength, coordination, agility and endurance. Through the repeated practice of throwing, pinning and submission techniques, judokas learn to use their opponent's energy to their advantage. Judo promotes self-confidence, self-control and the ability to adapt to different situations. In addition, Judo promotes ethical values, such as respect, courtesy and friendship, which are applied both on and off the tatami.
