Judo Moral Code by Jigoro Kano

The Judo moral code is a set of ethics that judoka should live by on and off the mat. There are eight values that make up the code outlined by judo’s founder Jigoro Kano.

  • Courtesy - Courtesy is the first point on the moral code. It means to be polite to others.
  • Courage - Courage is a very important part of the code. It means to face difficulties with bravery. Everyone has their own difficulties and being courageous is different for each judoka.
  • Honesty - Can you be sincere with your thoughts and actions? Do things that are morally correct. Act truthfully. All this is honesty.
  • Honour - Do what is right and stand by your principles. Be someone who acts nobly and correctly.
  • Modesty - Modesty means to be without ego in your actions and thoughts. Being modest is the opposite of being arrogant.
  • Respect - The appreciation of others (and self-respect is appreciation of yourself).
  • Self Control - This means to be in control of your emotions. Judo can be an emotional sport. Can you deal with disappointment without self control? Without becoming rude or aggressive?
  • Friendship - Being a good companion and friend is something that will stand you in good stead all your life.
