JUDO

a school of courage and life

Soliciting the whole body, judo is more than a sport, it is above all a school of courage and life for the children. 

Judo, literally "way of suppleness", was born in 1882. Based on the fighting art of the samurai, it promotes physical, moral and spiritual development. The fighters, or judokas, are divided by weight categories. They go barefoot and wear a uniform called judogi (for purists) or kimono for the general public. On the tatami, the judoka's objective is to throw his opponent on his back, to immobilize him on the ground or to force him to give up thanks to joint keys. Progressively, judo, considered as an art, is transformed into a combat sport, with in particular its introduction at the Olympic Games of Tokyo in 1964. 

Advised by pedagogues, psychologists and doctors, judo allows the child to :

  • to channel its energy
  • develop motor skills and flexibility
  • learn the basic discipline required in a judo room
  • strive to climb the encouraging ladder of grades
  • gain confidence...


All this gives the child a sense of security, a confidence that will facilitate his social integration and will follow him all his life.

No minimum level is required. The lessons and exercises are adapted to the level and age of each participant to allow each child to have fun while progressing at his/her own pace. 

EQUIPMENT

The judoka wears a reinforced cotton judogi. The girls wear in addition a white t-shirt under their dress. A belt, corresponding to the rank and progression, closes the jacket of the kimono. The MAA has a store where you can find your child's kimono.
