"Judo brings people together by neutralizing differences of race, gender, religion, nationality, language, politics, wealth, education, professions, etc. In a judogi we are all equal. Our love of this sport is the common denominator to build upon friendships, mutual respect, and self-confidence.”
"In judo you learn that in order to complete a throw you must risk being thrown. This is a valuable metaphor for life knowing sometimes the things you need to do in order to get ahead may result in being hurt, rejected, criticized, embarrassed, or unpopular. However, with proper training and hard work, the risks can be significantly reduced yielding many terrific rewards.”
