Strength in Judo

Building strength in Judo is the foundation for competing with an opponent. The reason for physical strength in Judo is because your opponent in a match may have more physical training.

Therefore, the match may be won based on a higher conditioning of strength; which your opponent brings forth. For example, gripping is a power grip which can take the opponent off-balance; causing a match to be won, with a foot sweep from a better developed amount of strength.

Thus, spiritual is a element used, however, physical strength is also a piece of the puzzle which is a component in total conditioning, during a competitive match
