This week the EJU Moral Code Cartoon will demonstrate ‘respect’ with the new video online.
At the very heart of everything we do, we live the judo code. Respect is having the admiration for opponents, regardless of their abilities. The ‘bow’ is a sign of respect, of having a worthy opponent and in judo we avoid disrespecting with big celebrations.
This cartoon series is a user friendly way to communicate the meaning of each of the values; courtesy, courage, friendship, sincerity, honour, modesty, respect or self-control. It will be released every week and can be used by clubs, coaches, parents and of course athletes. Rather than a document or poster, this is a fun way to learn about our sport.
You can also check out the previously published cartoons in the YouTube playlist.
