founder of OBC Judo and Chief Instructor, Sensei Dale Lehman continues to
teach Judo as Dr. Jigoro Kano intended. Professor Kano eliminated many of
the deadly kicks, slashes and locks so that Judo could be practiced safely.
In contrast to Jujitsu, Kodokan Judo entails good physical and moral
training in addition to the techniques of offense and defense. Ethics and
good sportsmanship is also stressed.
word "Judo" literally means "gentle way". In essence, a man may
overcome an opponent by yielding some ground and then utilizing some of the
opponent's strength of momentum. Today,
Kodokan Judo is practiced all over the world. Judo has flourished particularly
in such countries as France, Belgium, U.S.A., United Kingdom, Germany and
Italy. Kodokan Judo has been in existence for over 120
years and has become increasingly popular.
Since OBC Judo Team practices year
around, new students are welcome to begin Judo lessons during any time of
the year. A new student, young or old needs to keep in mind that Judo by
it's nature is a very physically challenging contact sport.
