The major clinic this year was as good as ever. The clinic gives us the chance to expose our students to the other instructors and black belts from other schools. It is always productive to get a different point of view. Of course the kids especially enjoy the "kid whoppers".

 However, my favorite part came at the end. Grand Master Kim used the last 30 minutes to talk about his personal history in Mudokwan. He explained how he trained in Korea and the evolution of the system in the United States. It was extremely enlightening and interesting.

Judo was founded in 1882 in Japan by Jigoro Kano, who modified the more dangerous techniques in JUJITSU and developed JUDO from a martial art to a sport. He also gave JUDO a physical education emphasis and a strong moral orientation. The word JUDO, which originates from the Japanese language, means "the gentle way".
