Le judo est un sport, mais pour moi, c’est aussi un art de penser.
Il n’enseigne pas la violence. C’est un sport de défense, qui possède son propre code moral et apprend à respecter son adversaire. D’ailleurs, chaque combat commence et finit par un salut, et il est interdit à quelqu’un de passer entre deux adversaires. Je trouve que le code moral du judo s’approprie également à la vie de tous les jours. Voici la liste des valeurs que chaque judoka doit connaître :
LE CONTRÔLE DE SOI
Voilà pour un portrait très succinct du Judo.
It’s a very technical sport, which makes a matter of principle to use the force of the opponent to send it back to him. Judo has been created by the Japanese man Jigoro Kano. A legend tell that the fondations of judo were found during a very harsh winter, noticing that the tree branches reacted in different ways to the weightiness of snow. The biggest branches broke whereas the most supple ones bent and get rid of their “aggressor”. That’s why the word “judo” means “the gentle way″.
Judo is a sport, but for me, it is also a way of thinking.
It does not teach violence. It’s a self-defence sport, which has its own moral code. It also teaches to respect his opponent. Besides, each fight starts and finishes with a bow, and it is not allowed to go passed two opponents. I think that the judo’s moral code is appropriated to everyday’s life. This is the list of the principles that each judoka has to know:
This was a very brief description of what is judo.
