Judo is a sport that could be practiced from the age of 4 years old til 104 years old
Judo has been created as a mental, physical and moral pedagogy in Japan in 1882 by the Jigoro Kano.
Judo is categorized as a modern and noble martial art today that has been developed as an Olympic Sport.
Judo reflects a philosophy and values that are summarized in the Moral Code:
1. Modesty: Be without vanity or boastfulness
2. Courtesy: Be polite to other people
3. Sincerity: Speak truthfully
4. Friendship: Be a good friend, be helpful and kind
5. Self-Control: Control over yourself and actions
6. Courage: Do what is right even if you are afraid
7. Respect : Regard for others
8. Honour: Be true to your word
Moral values are more important than the technic itself in Judo. The numerous salutes reflect the mark of respect (show the sign of respect).
