World Judo Day 2017



Hungarian Judo Association


After having organized a successful World Judo Championships Individual and Teams at the end of the summer, the Hungarian Judo Association actively participated in the World Judo Day 2017. 

“As the International Judo Federation announced that the theme of the World Judo Day was courage, we wanted to draw the attention of the judo society to the importance of equalizing social differences and spiritual preparation before trainings and competitions. We are convinced that we can only succeed in the future if we keep in mind the long-term interests of our society in both our actions. We also tried to make children to accept this theme by having a courage test organized for them, which had to be done with blindfolded eyes.

We invited Miklós Ungvári, olympic medalist, László Kovács spiritual yoga trainer and János Tardos, sport director of IBSA. They had the chance to talk all together with judokas about how to deal with spiritual strength by the use of courage and confidence, and how to develop it in everyday life. We think this is a very nice initiative and we have taken a step to create a more cohesive judo family.“

About 300 Roman schoolchildren met Judo Olympic Athletes - including Rosalba Forciniti, Matteo Marconcini, Girolamo Giovinazzo, Felice Mariani, Paolo Bianchessi, Elio Verde, Elios Manzi - Athletes of the National Juniors Team - among them Christian Parlati, Giovanni Esposito, Gabriele Sulli, Alessia Ritieni - and the testimonials of other federal sports such as Frank Chamizo and Daigoro Timoncini for Wrestling and Luigi Busà for Karate.

They had the chance to talk all together about how to deal with adversity by the use of courage and confidence, how to rise up from the falls that are frequent not only in Judo but even in everyday life and how the teachings of Jigoro Kano, founder of Judo, are applicable to sport, friendships, life. The young people were able to interview directly the Champions who told their own life experiences: beginnings, disappointments, victories, confidence and commitment.

"Judo is Courage in action, because it is a virtue in life and in judo itself it manifests frequently. Just as in the fight it is the strength of the will to carry out an action in spite of the impediments, it is like attacking in spite of the effort of the opponent. It is also the ability to overcome the falls and get up once again to continue fighting. Is to return to the next class to the next training, is to recognize that we still lack more effort to progress as we want. Courage leads to confronting important situations (such as tournaments, or a situation on the street) overcoming the fear of failing in them; and it is also the strength to do something for someone or for oneself without commitment to do it.

Nobody forces us to enter the dojo to make an effort to do judo ... to have courage is to defeat the fear of doing something is to defeat the fear of defeat, is to accept that we can be defeated, but never bend or surrender. At the end of the day a black belt is the same as a white belt that never left. That’s why the winners never quit, the quitters never win. Courage helps us feel good and proud of us by achieving something that costs us or scares us. And we must bear in mind that participation is already a very important achievement always, it is to accept that not only the triumph is worth, but also the effort is important. That is why the courage is to overcome our own adversities when we really need it. Physical courage is opposed to pain and physical fatigue, heavy training or the possibility of injury or falls. Another form of courage, morality drives us to act as we consider correct despite receiving criticism, discredit, shame, dishonour or social reprisals. In judo and in life itself there are many examples of courage..."
