Title [ICM's Pick] Publication of THE WORDS OF JUDO
THE WORDS OF JUDO
A book for children, but also valid support for teachers and parents
Through martial arts, children and young people learn about physical activity and lifelong skills. However, additional support can enrich and accelerate their learning. The book JUDO WORDS is an interesting judo guide that you can read at home, at school and use in judo lessons.
It's an educational and at the same time fun booklet, all to be coloured, dedicated to little judo practitioners. It includes professional judo terminology that is consistent with the terminology of the Kodokan Institute in Tokyo.
“Judo is more than learning and using combat techniques. It is a comprehensive and wonderful system of physical, intellectual, and moral education. It has its own culture, system, legacy, habits, and tradition. To understand and internalize all of the above, it is necessary to know and understand judo terminology.” Nuša Lampe, the author.
