Kanō Jigorō et l'élaboration du jūdō − Le choix de la faiblesse et ses conséquences

Abstract : This thesis deals about jūdō, with jūdō as the transcription of the Japanese word 柔道 and the abbreviation of Kōdōkan jūdō講道館柔道 the method founded in 1882 by Kanō Jigorō嘉納治五郎(1860-1938). More specifically, it comes to exploring and analyzing how he defined judo, without involving other contemporary or later interpretations. We explored the intimate connection between the creation and the creator, trying to understand what was the motivation of this man, how he structured his method, why he did it this way. We also analyzed its speech – should we say speeches – about judo. In other words, we focused on judo as the work of a man driven by his ideas, ideals and... character! In three parts, the first devoted to the process, the second on method and the third on the Discourse on Method, as well as the evolution during about sixty years, we attempted to clarify the process of creation, to distinguish between the legacy and contributions, the discourse and practice, to enable the historian, the sociologist, the educator, the philosopher, to better observe how the experience of a young idealist man (Kano Jigoro was 21 years old when he created Judo) became a global discipline.
