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 and Benefit
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.
