Judo is an originally Japanese selfdefense art designed by Jigoro Kano around 1882. From Jiu Jitsu, Jigoro selected a number of techniques that could eliminate the opponent without seriously injuring him in the process.Norms and values, respect, self-control and cooperation are central when practising judo.
Judo has since grown into a sport practised worldwide, including at Olympic sport level. Advantages of practising Judo are that it gives you more self-confidence, you learn to stand up for yourself and you keep in shape.
One of Jigoro’s most important sayings is: “You can only learn judo by doing it” and as a BRESS member you can go judo at Judovereniging Baronie in the municipal gym. Super chill by the way; you can take as many as 3(!) trial lessons to see if judo is the sport for you.
