To be eligible for this award our Judoka's have to show that they can adhere to the Judo code throughout the lesson .

The Judo Moral Code is a set of ethics created by the sport's founder Jigoro Kano. He believed they were vital in the development of judo players and individuals both on and off the mat. The code itself is made up of 8 parts: 

Courtesy, Courage, 

Honesty, Honour, 

Modesty, Respect, 

Self-Control and Discipline .
