Judo is a wonderful sport that develops students physically, morally and mentally. It teaches values, builds resilience and ultimately helps to develop good character.
Judo was originally created in 1882 by Prof. Kano (嘉納治五郎) as a physical, mental, and moral pedagogy for Japanese school children. Judo means a gentle way. Ju meaning gentle and do meaning way.
Having been involved in Judo since I was a young boy I have benefited immensely from the sport of Judo. I would encourage both girls and boys to give it a go!
