Judo combines jiu-jitsu techniques with other oriental arts. The practice has clear rules and strict prohibitions, which can expel the athlete from the mat, such as blows to the face and movements that can injure the opponent's neck and vertebrae. Therefore, it is important to get out of mind that this is a violent activity.

According to UNESCO, it is one of the best sports to be practiced during childhood (between 4 and 14 years old), as it combines play and fun. Therefore, it must be started as soon as possible. In addition, children's judo has numerous benefits for children. See some of them.
