judo development

Judo High School in South Korea (한국의 유도 고등학교)

South Korea has always been, and will continue to be one of the dominant forces in the sport of judo.  Whenever a Korean team is present at an international-level competition, you can be certain that their players will be in contention for a spot on the podium.

The reason is simple; they have a tried-and-true, well-oiled training machine that churns out World and Olympic champions continuously.

They own a blueprint, and the blueprint goes something like this: take a geographically small country that produces world-class talent each generation and employ those players back into a complete end-to-end program that begins in a fully integrated school training system.

Here in Busan, Korea’s second largest city, there are a number of school judo teams.  They begin in elementary school and continue up through university. There’s even an all-girl’s middle school judo team here.
