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.
