Coaches and instructors are to follow the Judo Canada Coach’s Code of Conduct. This document is available if you click here:

While observing the sensei during a session, you should be able to notice the following:
It’s also important to know that judokas and their parents, as participants, also have responsibilities.
Judo is a sport that can not be practiced and perfected without a partner. It must be practiced safely and with discipline to fully enjoy its benefits. For this reason, the values of our sport are expectect to become part of the participants’ behaviour both on and off the mat. The values are:
Support your child in their effort to improve. Remember, there is a very thin line between supporting and pushing your child.
Always respect the partners and opponents of your child. Without them, there is no progress, and judo is not possible.
If you like what you see in judo programs, try it out. Most programs offer judo to adults and often special programs are arranged where children interact on the mat with their parents. You may become a judoka at any age. Those who practice judo for life enjoy the social and personal connection developed with the people who share the same passion for judo.
