Project Description

Judo is started by Jigoro Kano Sensei in 1882 and has now become a widely practised sport all over the world. Judo (柔道), which means ‘the gentle way’ in Japanese, focuses on using minimum effort to bring down opponents larger and stronger than oneself. Without kicks and punches, Judo consists of tachiwaza (standing techniques) and newaza (groundwork), which can be loosely associated with throws and pin-downs respectively.
