The Japanese word Judo means Camino de la flexibilidad, de la suavidad o camino afable .
It was created at the end of the nineteenth century by Dr. Jigoro Kano (1860-1938), based on methods of self-defense Eastern Samurai; He combined the style and techniques of jujitsu to create the new discipline.
Kano founded the first Judo school when he was 22 years old, in 1882. He became a distinguished teacher, and established the Eastern philosophy of Judo: mental and physical training to get the mind and body to be in a state of harmony and balance.
Two principles described by Kano themselves make a more general definition of Judo:
Principle of the effective utilization of physical and mental energy : efficiency is obtained with a minimum energy cost
Principle of friendship and mutual prosperity : the harmonious development of a human group is only possible with mutual concessions
