So what is Judo?
Judo is a martial arts form practiced by millions around the world and considered an official Olympic sport since 1964, Judo was developed in Japan hundreds of years ago. It literally means “the gentle way”, which refers to techniques which involve giving way to the force of one’s opponent. In reality, however, Judo is an intense physical sport and powerful means of self-defence. Unlike other martial arts such as Tae Kwon Do and Karate, there are no kicks or punches in Judo. It mainly involves the use of certain holds, throws and locks, and there will be a lot of grappling and controlled movements. Judo also does not involve punching and does not use weapons. During the fight two opponents will use balance, power, movement and gripping of the other’s judo uniform to try to subdue one another. It is said that mastery of judo techniques takes substantial time, effort, and energy and involves rough physical and mental training.

What I like with Judo is that more than just a combat sport, it also offers students a code of ethics – that is, a way of living and being. It is actually a part of the physical education program of numerous junior high and high schools, and colleges, around the world. Although I am not sure if it is also part of the physical education program in some other schools in my country, because it isn’t in the school where I studied.
Judo is not only for men but also for woomen
