Our World Tuesday,ABC Wednesday, J for Judo

My grandson lying on the floor and watching the teacher.

                                                in the photo on the left.

Kanō Jigorō ( 28 October 1860 – 4 May 1938) was a Japanese educator and athlete, the founder of Judo. Judo was the first Japanese martial art to gain widespread international recognition, and the first to become an official Olympic sport.

Our children were members of a judo club. The eldest trained every week very hard. She got the blue belt. My younger daughter got the green belt and our son had the yellow belt. 

The white belt is the beginner's belt followed by the  yellow, orange, green, blue, brown and finally the black belt. This is the case in Europe, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.

The photos above were taken by my grandson's father, who also participated in the weekly training.

With thanks to Denise Nesbitt, who created the ABC meme.For more interesting ABC posts click on the logo in the sidebar . This week we are looking for words beginning with J of round 19.

It's so good for kids to do a sport like this. Training the mind as well as the body.

My niece studied judo for many years and I saw her in action several times. To think that the work means 'gentle' or 'soft' doesn't seem right somehow!
