There is a link between judo athletes and dancers since they are both interested in kinesthetic awareness (Campos, González, Iglesias, & Dopico, 2001; Imamura & Johnson, 2003). This paper considers that dancers and judo athletes share a common understanding of body rhythm through the kinesthetic awareness in their training. More precisely, the paper goes on to propose a 10 step approach to the development of rhythm that can be applied by judo coaches.
