Judo was founded by Ju-Jitsu Master, Sensei Jigaro Kano in
Japan in 1882. Its most prominent feature is its competitive
element, where the objective is to either throw or take down an
opponent to the ground and immobilize or otherwise subdue an
opponent with a pin, or force an opponent to submit with a joint
lock or a choke. The worldwide spread of judo has led to the
development of a number of offshoots such as Sambo and
Judo -- known as the "Gentle Art" -- emphasizes overcoming
opponents using balance-breaking throws, grappling, pins, and
submission techniques executed with a minimum of physical
effort. It is practiced in many countries all over the world by men
and women -- both young and old. It teaches self confidence,
humility and camaraderie. This means that Judo players or
"Judoka" are great people!
