Jigoro Kano Principles


“Walk a single path, becoming neither cocky with victory nor broken with defeat, without forgetting caution when all is quiet or becoming frightened when danger threatens.”

Jigoro Kano’s Five Principles of Judo: 

1. Carefully observe oneself and one’s situation, carefully observe others, and carefully observe one’s environment, 

2. Seize the initiative in whatever you undertake, 

3. Consider fully, act decisively, 

4. Know when to stop, 

5. Keep to the middle.

In an argument, you may silence your opponent by pressing an advantage of strength or of wealth, or of education. But you do not really convince him. Though he is no longer saying anything, in his heart he still keeps to his opinion, the only way to make him change that opinion is to speak quietly and reasonably. When he understands that you are not trying to defeat him, but only to find the truth, he will listen to you and perhaps accept what you tell him.
