*Lesson: Judo Etiquette
Judo "Rei ni hajimari, rei ni owaru" (Beginning and ending with a bow of respect), and the proper "Reiho" (Etiquette) is the first lesson that newcomers receive.
Reiho is an expression of respect for the other person. The white color of a beginner's Belt reflects the beginner's pureness of heart in terms of respect for the opponent. The beginner learns this Reiho (Etiquette) in order to engage in friendly competition without arrogance.
In Judo, there is a "Ritsu-rei" (Standing bow) and a "Zarei" (Seated bow), and these are always performed at the beginning and end of Judo "Kata" (Form) practice, contests, and Randori (Free sparring).
These Rules Apply to Any Dojo You May Visit Anywhere in The World

The concepts of "Jita kyoei" (Mutual benefit) and "Seiryoko zenyo" (Maximum efficiency) were established by Jigoro Kano, founder of Kodokan Judo. Achieving a state of mutual trust and assistance benefits both the Judo practitioner and society at large. Such a spirit is perfected through Judo, thereby promoting the concept of mutual benefit and prosperity in the larger world.
Following these rules of etiquette has a direct reflection on you and your dojo, "UFC GYM JUDO". This etiquette should become second nature.

*Lesson---> JUDO HISTORY
Kano meeting with the heads of Ju-Jutsu schools (All Former Samurai) to unite under Judo & decide the kata or Samurai combat forms for "KODOKAN JUDO". (Kano center front with hands on cane) At the age of 22 Jigoro Kano opens a dojo, which he called the "KODOKAN" The year 1882... Below is a movie about the beginning of "JUDO", a must see movie for every Judoka to watch, this is our JUDO standard to live by!
Sanshiro Sugata (Judo vs. Ju-jutsu)
It follows the story of Sanshiro, a strong stubborn youth, who travels into the city in order to learn jujutsu . However, upon his arrival he discovers a new form of self-defence, this new martial art is called "JUDO".
This film was divided into four parts... NOTE: They refer to the KODOKAN as SHUDOKAN & KANO as YANO... Movies? (Allow for commercial ads and loading of each video. Parts 1-4)
What Defines a Judo throw: There are 67 basic Nage-Waza (Throwing Techniques) and each throw has a multitude of variations.
A Judo throw is a judo throw, and a handle is a handle. In Sport Judo generally a Judo GI is used to throw your opponent but not always. (JUDOs origin is jujutsu/Yawara) The Samurai developed jujutsu for combat in the battlefield and they didn't wear a Judo GI, it didn't matter whether they grabbed an Arm, Head, Ear or Battle Armour etc... these throws were developed to apply the technique with any kind of handle or grip. (Sent by the KODOKAN to introduce Judo to the World) was a man named (Mitsuyo Maeda) aka Conde Coma the man who taught Carlos Gracie Judo which gave birth to Brazilian jiu-jitsu. Maeda would fight anyone with or without a GI, the results were the same, you got thrown and submitted.
Mitsuyo Maeda aka "Count Conde Koma" (1874 - 1941) Expert in "Kosen Judo / Jujutsu" butt scooter or guard jumper, and Kodokan JUDO student of Jigoro Kano.
NOTE: Mitsuyo Maeda had an uninterrupted winning streak of more than a thousand matches! He won every judo/jujitsu, free fight, luta libre (portuguese for free fight) or catch-can contest he ever competed in. He did this all at 5' 6" and a 157 lbs, and took on all-comers, any size and weight!!!
The Japanese art of Jujitsu was outlawed in the late 1800s by Japan's own Emperor in an effort to become more modern. The art was saved by Jigoro Kano, a true martial arts legend, who streamlined the overly complicated and disjointed art into Judo and also created the concept of awarding students black belts. He founded his own school and began teaching. One of Kano's star pupils was a man named Mitsuyo Maeda, who would go on to be pivotal in the founding of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
"KODOKAN KOHAKU SHIAI STYLE CONTEST": (In this case, better known as a SLAUGHTER LINE!!!) Conde Koma will challenge three men per night. If he can't defeat them in three minutes each, the challengers can split "$500" A whole lot of money back in 1911. Of course no one ever collected!
