In the article Judo, The importance of randori and kata, Willem Visser, 8th Dan Judo IJF, executive coach, strategic adviser, and international lecturer was writing that the main goal of randori is personal development.
In this article he describes the different aspects of that personal development.
“Judo is the way to the most effective use of physical and mental strength. By practicing in attack and defence the body and soul develop and spiritual content is becomes of the being. In this way one is able to perfect oneself and to be value to the world. This is the ultimate goal of judo discipline. Anyone who wants to follow the way of judo must engrave this teaching in her/his heart”.Kano Jigoro Shihan, founder of Judo.
