Learning values through Judo

Amongst all the extracurricular activities that we offer at CBS we can highlight Judo as one of the sport activities through which children are taught fundamental values such as respect, courage, honesty, honour, modesty, auto-control, friendship and education.

We teach all levels, one hour, twice a week. One of the objectives of this activity is to develop their general gross motor skills ( balance, turning, jumping) and more specific ones (grips, projections and immobilization); conditioned reflexes such as strength, flexibility or resistance; psycho cognitive aspects like paying attention, having confidence and surpassing oneself; and social skills.

“Judo is a sport of Japanese origin created to educate the mind, the body and the spirit.”, (Kodokan Judo, 1954).
