Under the governance of its Board of Directors, Becerra Judo
Club is a not-for-profit 501(c)3 corporation dedicated to
the teaching of judo, both as an art of self- defense and as
a sport which has enjoyed Olympic recognition since 1964.
We pride ourselves on teaching the ideals on which Dr.
Jigoro Kano, founder of Judo based his Judo.
The Principle of Maximum Efficient use of Mind & Body
The Principle of Perfecting of One's Self and Mutual Welfare
The principle of maximum efficient use of mind and body
means to apply all spiritual as well as physical energy
effectively to obtain the best results. The second principle
is related to the social order and harmony in society in
daily life by "mutual welfare and benefit". Dr. Kano's aim
in Judo was to teach these two principles so that both the
individual and the society as a whole would be able to
achieve the highest social and technical advancement,
develop strong healthy bodies, and learn to protect
themselves from accidents or enemies.
