BUDOKAN Martial Arts

The Gentle Way

 The main principles of Judo are Maximum Efficiency” and “Mutual Welfare and Benefit.”  The goal of maximum efficiency teaches the judoka to use the least amount of physical strength necessary to throw an opponent.  This is accomplished by proper use of technique and timing.  The goal of mutual welfare and benefit was an extension of Dr. Kano’s belief that Judo could help the individual become a better member of society.  Dr. Kano felt that the personal discipline that Judo taught would extend beyond the dojo into daily life and could allow the judoka to become a more productive member of society.
