Very early on in their lives, some children become real live wires, whose energy is often difficult to channel. Sport at school is not enough to satisfy their appetite for exertion, you have to find a way for them to expend this energy. This is what judo is actually made for this.
Meet up with friends after school to let off steam one last time before going home. When learning judo, the instructor will require that they show skill when sparring one-on-one and also the ability to think: judo is both a physical sport and a mental one. Our young budding judokas will have to learn the name of techniques, obviously in Japanese, but also when to use them at the right time. This will be learnt whilst always observing a moral code of conduct.
This is what, in the collective unconscious, characterises judo. A set of life rules to follow to the letter that helps the judoka and the child to best thrive. This moral code is always displayed in the dojo so that each parent and each judoka immerse themselves in it all the time.
There are 8 fundamental principles to respect:
is about respect of others.
is about doing what is right.
is about expressing yourself without hiding what you think.
is about standing by your word.
is about not talking about yourself with arrogance.
there can be no trust without respect.
is about knowing to keep quiet when you feel mounting anger.
is the hardest and strongest of human values.
It provides each judoka with a code of conduct to respect not only in the dojo but at home and school. But above all else, judo is about falling and then picking yourself up.
