Success is dependent on individual’s efforts. If they want to win, they can’t count on someone else. If they lose a match, athletes can’t blame anyone else for their failure. This teaches them to be responsible for their own action and decisions.
Kids are taught to respect their strength and techniques, thus they gain a disdain for bullying as well.

Judo (wikt:柔道 jūdō, meaning "gentle way") was originally created in 1882 by Jigoro Kano (嘉納治五郎) as a physical, mental and moral pedagogy in Japan. It is generally categorized as a modern martial art, which later evolved into a combat and Olympic sport. Its most prominent feature is its competitive element, where the objective is to either throw or takedown an opponent to the ground, immobilize or otherwise subdue an opponent with a pin, or force an opponent to submit with a joint lock or a choke. Strikes and thrusts by hands and feet as well as weapons defenses are a part of judo, but only in pre-arranged forms (kata, 形) and are not allowed in judo competition or free practice (randori, 乱取り). A judo practitioner is called a judoka.
