Benefits of JUDO

JUDO is a Japanese Martial Art, founded by Kano Jigoro Shihan, who as a youth began practicing Jujutsu as a way to strengthen his body. Kano studied several styles of classical Jujutsu, mastering their deepest teachings, and supplemented this training with an interest in other combative forms as well. Integrating what he considered the positive points of these with his own ideas and inspirations, he established a revised body of physical technique, and also transformed the traditional Jujutsu principle of "defeating strength through flexibility" into a new principle of "maximum efficient use of physical and mental energy." The result was a new theoretical and technical system that Kano felt better matched the needs of modern people. Today, JUDO is an Olympic Sport, with 40 million students worldwide.
