①Welcome to Japan!

According to Nihon Shoki (the oldest chronicles of Japan) the beginning of our country was when the first emperor, Emperor Jimmu was enthroned around 2679 years ago. (asof 2019)
Japan is an island located in the eastern part of Eurasia it contains forests, mountains and ocean. In such a unique geographically diverse environment, we have cultivated our sensibility and enhanced our spirituality since ancient times.
I think “Budo (martial arts)” is one of the cultural aspects which represents Japanese sensibility and spirituality.
Please come and experience with your mind and body the culture of Japan through Judo: a martial arts that originated in Japan.
I am looking forward to seeing you!

②What is Judo?

Jigoro Kano the founder of Judo was born in Hyogo Prefecture in 1860.
His mother Sada, is said to have taught Kano “Even if you have difficulties, prioritize others and serve them.” Even though his mother died when he was only 10 years old he learned from her the importance of serving others and being gentle hearted.
Kano was very intelligent and entered Tokyo University in 1875. But because he was small and physically weak he was often bullied by older and stronger boys. This experience made him yearn to be strong and he became interested in jujutsu. When he was 18, he entered a dojo called “Tenjin Shinyo ryu Syushinkan” and trained under Hachinosuke Fukuda.
At that time, every style of jujutsu concealed their signature moves and passed down their secret techniques to their students. Kano took many types of different jujutsu school’s special techniques and combined and organized all the good points into a new style of jujutsu and named it Judo.
The origin of jujutsu is different battle techniques from the Sengoku period (the age of civil wars) such as Atemi(striking technique), Shime-waza (stranglehold), and Kiwame-waza (locking technique). These were skills used to kill enemies in a battle. These kind of cruel techniques were already unnecessary by the peaceful Edo Period, and as Japan became modernized and westernized after the Meiji Restoration they were no longer needed and it was obvious that they were going to become outdated.
“Judo” is not “a Jutsu (technique)” but “a Michi (a path)”. It is not a technique for hurting or killing others. It is a path for forming identity and to teach people how to live. It is a way to enhance both yourself and your partner and that is what Jigoro Kano wanted to teach through Judo.
At the age of 23, in 1882, Kano opened a dojo of his own in a rented space at the Eishoji Temple in Tokyo Shitayadistrict. Kano’s outstanding intelligence and high spirituality modernized and rationalized the old style of martial arts into a new method “Judo”.
Now, over 130 years after the creation of Judo, there are around 200 countries and regions joining the International Judo Federation. Also Judo has been a part of the Olympic Games since the Tokyo Olympics in 1964.
Recently, Judo is thought of as a competition sport rather than a martial art. But we shouldn’t forget that at its root there are the underlying philosophies of Jigoro Kano.
At our Judo Experience Program you will be able to touch the essence of Judo.
Please come and experience Judo with your heart, technique and body.

1860年 柔道の創始者 嘉納治五郎は、兵庫県に生まれました。
嘉納は大変頭もよく、1875年 現在の東京大学に進学しました。
当時の柔術各派は、それぞれの得意技を隠し、所謂 秘技・奥義として門下に伝えていました。嘉納は、柔術の諸流派の得意技を統合し、いいところをを全部収めて体系化し、「柔道」と名付けました。
1882年 当時23歳だった嘉納は、東京下谷の永昌寺の一角を間借りして、柔道の道場を開きました。嘉納の優れた知性と高い精神性のもと、廃れゆく「武」を近代仕様に合理化し、メソッド化された柔道の誕生です。
「Judo Experience Program」は、そんな柔道の本質に触れることができる内容となっています。

③Judo experience program

Each program is about 90 minutes long.
Interpreters (in English) will be available, so please do not worry even if you cannot speak Japanese.
<Course A> For people inexperienced in judo
This is the best class for those who say, ” I have never tried Judo before, but I would like to experience throwing someone even just for once!”
【Program Menu】
(1) History of Judo
When did Judo begin? How did the founder Jigoro Kano think and why did he create judo?
(2) Judo Techniques
Judo is known for its nagewaza (throwing techniques). There are 68 nagewaza in total.
No matter what kind of throwing technique you use, you cannot throw an opponent by brute force. There is a logic behind it that embodies the phrase, “柔よく剛を制す” (Jūyokugōwoseisu), meaning “The soft overcomes the hard”, or in other words, “Flexibility is stronger than muscle.”
At the Judo experience, you will try a throwing technique called “O-goshi”.
We will carefully instruct you so that you can experience the saying “柔よく剛を制す”(Jūyokugōwoseisu)
You can also try “Ukemi,” a technique to protect yourself when being thrown by an opponent.
The technique of ukemi is also useful when you fall down in daily life.
<Course B>For experienced Judo players
This program is designed for those who already enjoy Judo in their own country.
This class is ideal for those who want to deepen their skills in Japan, the birthplace of Judo, and for those who are interested in Japanese Judo.

In Judo nagewaza (throwing techniques), there is a logic of “Kuzushi-Tsukuri-Kake”.
