The objective of the course is to help children progress in learning the techniques of judo.

Judo is a martial art and combat sport of Japanese origin. Depending on the children’s belt, different techniques are taught to them, always in a playful way. There are the techniques of throwing, ground control, chokes and arm locks, for example Hon gesa gatame (basic cross control), Ushiro gesa gatame (cross back control), Tsuri komi goshi (a throw using the hip).

In martial arts, it is also important to know how to fall so as not to get hurt. Judo has a moral code, whose values are: politeness, courage, sincerity, honour, modesty, respect, self-control and friendship.
