Jigoro Kano developed Judo as a means for self development. To use judo as such one is dependent of a Sensei and of fellow judoka's, either in training or in competition. NOT to respect them is not to respect your own development. One should be grateful to a training partner opponent for their help in your development, especially when you get confronted with issues to work on.

Respect to me is the corner stone of our sport. It is to be earned not demanded, therefore it is not only a philosophy, but a human quality that a judoka is to uphold, take pride in feeling it and be strong enough of character to readily give it, looking for nothing in return. Respect of your opponent and their skills is necessary to take judokas to the top levels and beyond and to truly understand not only the sport but the Art of Judo. Yours in Judo, Neil Adams MBE
