Master Jigoro Kanos Rules for Effective Training

Have no falsehood in mind.
• Reluctance or deceit are not conducive to the inner harmony required by Judo and Jiu-Jitsu practice.

Do not lose self-confidence.
• Learn to act wholeheartedly, without hesitation. Show reverence toward the practice of Judo and Jiu-jitsu, by keeping your mind in it.

Keep your balance.
• The center of gravity follows the movement of the body. The center of gravity is the most important element in maintaining stability. If it is lost, the body is naturally unbalanced. Thus, fix your mind so that your body is always in balance.

Utilize your strength efficiently.
• Minimize the use of strength with the quickest movement of body. Acknowledge that what is called stillness and motion is nothing but an endlessly repeated process.
Don’t discontinue training.

• Mastery of Judo and Jiu-Jitsu cannot be accomplished in a short time. Since skills depend on mental and physical application, constant training is essential.

Keep yourself humble.
• If you become self-centered, you will build a wall around yourself and lose your freedom. If you can humble yourself in preparation for an event you will surely be better able to judge and understand it. In a match, you will be able to detect the weak point of your opponent and easily put him/her under control.
