Values in Judo

One of the distinguishing aspects of judo is how its basic values and principles translate into a way of life. What is learned on the mat through hard judo training transfers at home, at school, at work or at play.

These values include:

  • playing by the rules
  • co-operating with others
  • respecting self and others
  • self-discipline and humility
  • self-confidence and commitment
  • perseverance and determination
  • concentrating and controlling emotions
