“Judo should be presented like an educative system which contributes to reach skill of the educative system: knowledge, culture, autonomy, physical world, citizen and social interaction” explained Vicente Carratalá of Spain. The example of Spain shows it is possible to apply judo in a country educative system and underlines the conceptual meaning of judo.
