Competition, Kata, and the Art of Judo

By Llyr C. Jones, Ph.D.




Competition, Kata, and the Art of Judo

Kano Jigaro designed Judo to be open to all regardless of age and sex. The original guidelines have evolved into competitive sport resulting in a substantial decline in the number of adults practicing judo, causing a decline in Judo membership. This article argues for the need to re-examine the value system associated with judo.
