Judo “Japonismes 2018 JITA-KYOEI PROJECT”

By observing branches covered with snow and seeing that the larger ones break under the weight, while the more flexible branches rid themselves of the natural aggressor by bending, a Japanese monk came to the following conclusion: softness can overcome strength. Based on this observation and samurai combat techniques, Kanô Jigorô set in 1882 the founding principles of a new discipline: judo or “the gentle way.” Judo is based on three essential and inseparable principles: Ju for “adaptation,” Seiryoku Zenyo for “maximum efficiency” and Jita Kyoei for “Mutual benefit.” Kanô Jigorô created judo as a method of education.

France and Japan, the two leading nations in judo will apply these principles in “Japonismes 2018 JITA-KYOEI PROJECT”, a series of events that will take place between December 2018 and February 2019.
