The Way of the Stick
Jôdô does not include competition or free fighting. Through the study of kata, the practitioner benefits from a traditional system of physical, technical and mental education.
After studying the basics of handling the stick alone, the beginner studies these bases with an opponent armed with a wooden saber (bokken). It then undertakes the study of the 7 series of prearranged forms (kata), the rhythm and content of which are specific and closely related to the progressive system of education which is the richness of this tradition.

That's it ! The school resumes and with it the courses at the dojo! As all sections do not resume at the same time (some as of today and others as of September 4th), we invite you to contact the sections or the secretariat directly to find out when your section is back!
After the water damage at the Liotard Dojo, the city decided to close the dojo completely during the holiday period in order to replace the floor.
This does not mean the end of the training because most sections have introduced alternatives (including other training places) to continue the courses!
We invite you to contact your section representatives to find out what your section has set up and what will be the exact date of the re-entry.
If some of you would like to get business in their lockers before the start of the work and the complete closure of the dojo, we invite them to do so before the end of this week!
