What is Judo?



Judo is a modern Japanese martial art, an Olympic sport and now used in combat sport such as MMA. Judo was founded in 1882 in Japan by Dr. Kano Jigoro. Judo is an art similar to wrestling unlike karate, where it only emphasized on punching and kicking. In judo there are two main focuses, standup (tachi-waza) and grappling (ne-waza) techniques. Its most noticeable phase is the standup techniques, where one throws their opponent to the ground and immobilizes the opponent or using grappling maneuver such as pins, chokes, or joint lock to subdue or force an opponent to tap out.
