"Another tenet of randori is to apply just the right amount of force--never too much, never too little."
"Before and after practicing Judo or engaging in a match, opponents bow to each other. Bowing is an expression of gratitude and respect. In effect, you are thanking your opponent for giving you the opportunity to improve your technique."
Judo is the way to the most effective use of both physical and spiritual strength. By training you in attacks and defenses it refines your body and your soul and helps you make the spiritual essence of Judo a part of your very being. In this way you are able to perfect yourself and contribute something of value to the world. This is the final goal of Judo discipline.
"Consider fully, act decisively."
The judoist has no time to allow himself a margin for error, especially in a situation upon which his or another person's very life depends. The secret of Judo is serenity of mind.
Watanabe and Avakian
Through the study of attack and defense in Judo we learn to harmonize our spirit and body, learning to both fight hard and let go softly.
