Jigoro Kano

"Consider fully, act decisively"

 

 

Formulated in 1882 in Japan, and derived from the ancient art of Jiu-Jitsu, the refinement of techniques over the ensuing decades has seen judo go on to become on Olympic sport with its inclusion at the 1964 Olympics. The Kodokan Judo Institute in Tokyo, Japan is the fountainhead of judo leadership in the world.

Before and after practicing Judo or engaging in a match, opponents bow to each other. Bowing is an expression of gratitude and respect. In effect, you are thanking your opponent for giving you the opportunity to improve your technique.
.....Dr. Jigoro Kano
