The article came o being after some recollections of the beginnings of Polish judo combined with the history of Japanese judo. The aims of the founder of Kodokan, Jigoro Kano, have been compared with the trends of Polish beginnings and consequentlythe Polish model of judo progress. Several anniversaries have been reminded in order to reconstruct the lines of development of judo sport. Reflecting on the times of decline of the Polish judo after the decades of its spectacular progress, the author reminds the vision of judo expansion in the world based on the principles of non-violence, education aims and mutual welfare.
