• My thoughts on the DO

    Starting practice is one of the most precious moments. It can be very exciting and eventually leads to fabulous growth. Now is the very moment to decide if to go all the way through.

    When I started judo practice I decided, that I would have done it for the rest of my life and that my Master would have been a constant presence in my thoughts.

    Fundamental to the DO is one ingredient: COMMITMENT, indicating, that self-discipline and persistence must be kept regardless of how hard it is.

    Practice puts us under constant stress, but without it we would never be able to develop our personality.

    Commitment and self-discipline are precious as gold for those seeking the DO.

    I have a question. I am just starting a judo club and wanted to know what is the best way to teach kid’s how to ukemi?

    • Hi Fred, I am writing you on behalf of Bruno Carmeni. It is a little difficult to write you in a few words how to teach the ukemis to the kids. Nevertheless we are working on some videos, which will be posted either on the blog or on the FB Page “Bruno Carmeni Judo” upon the return from the summer holidays, from September on. aidajudo
