This study is a meta-analysis of the concept of motor behavior in judo, addressed during the formative stage of performance discussed in the international and Romanian literature: the components of motor behavior, the stimuli used during training regarding the possibilities of optimizing motor behavior in judo, regulation and self-regulation as factors for improving performance in judo.

The issue of the progressive optimization of training stimuli, which are represented by the factors of training (volume, intensity, complexity-density), as well as that of motor, medical and psychological criteria, applied during training by methods and procedures specific to judo, is addressed.

To obtain high performance, the coach together with the team of specialists should act on the mentioned levers, through specific training methods, as well as by investigating and monitoring their level. High-intensity effort is stress for the judoka, and athletes must continuously adapt by special and repeated training. In order for this adaptation to occur, during training, increasing intensity stimuli will be used, until stimuli close or identical to those used in competition are obtained.


Key words: motor behavior, judo, training stimuli, adaptation.
