Judo is a Japanese martial art created by Jigoro Kano in 1882 and means the “gentle way” in English. It is a grappling form of martial art and competitive Judo consists of a match where the objective is to throw and pin an opponent or force a submission with a joint lock or a choke.

Striking with the hands and feet as well as weapons defense is also a part of Judo training, but not allowed in sport competition. Judo practitioners train not to be aggressive, but to use their opponent’s aggression against them making it suitable for all age groups and fitness levels. Judo became an official Olympic sport in 1964.
