Our Judo philosophy


Precision comes before power

It is very important that so called power throws can be averted right from the beginning. On one hand, these are not coherent with the principle of Judo, on the other hand, the student neglects the technical skills by putting too much confidence in his power. Having power is certainly an advantage for the judoka , but its use must be combined with the finest technique, which can be learned only when it is initially practiced without the excessive use of power.
Sensei Horst Wolf, 8th Dan

Judo is seen as the gentle way of disabling an opponent using throws, levers, choking and restraining techniques, which were picked from the variety of numerous fighting techniques of the martial arts. The Japanese Kanō Jigorō (Japanese 嘉纳 治 五郎, 1860-1938)  is considered as the founder of modern judo.
