Judo is originally a Japanese self-defense art that was designed around 1882 by Jigoro Kano. From Ju Jitsu, Jigoro selected a number of techniques that could eliminate the opponent, without seriously degrading him. Norms and values, respect, self-control and team work are the main focus during the practice of judo.
Over the years, judo has grown into a sport that is practiced worldwide, including at Olympic level. Advantages of practicing Judo are that it increases your self-confidence, you learn how to stand up for yourself and you maintain your fitness.
One of the most important statements from Jigoro is: “Judo can only be learned by doing it” and as a BRESS-member, you can practice judo at Judovereniging Baronie in the municipality sports hall. Good to know; you can take no less than 3 (!) trial lessons to see if judo is the sport for you.
