The Art of Judo - Episode 1

Project Overview

Judo, meaning "gentle way", was originally created in 1882 by Jigoro Kano as a physical, mental and moral pedagogy in Japan. It has evolved over time into a modern martial art and Olympic sport, but has remained grounded in its core values – courtesy, courage, friendship, honesty, honour, modesty, respect and self-control.

This 4 part documentary series explores how these core values have influenced and shaped Japanese culture, as we meet judo practitioners and stars of the past, present and future.
