Judo has an interesting history. During the 1880’s in Japan, a little boy was picked on by his fellow students. Dr. Jogoro Kano, as he was later to be known, decided that something must be done. He began martial arts training to fend off these bullies, yet found most of the moves he learned just got him beat up even more.
Judo (meaning "gentle way") is a modern martial art, combat and Olympic sport created in Japan in 1882 by Jigoro Kano . Its most prominent feature is its competitive element, where the objective is to either throw or takedown an opponent to the ground, immobilize or otherwise subdue an opponent with a pin, or force an opponent to submit with a joint lock or a choke. Strikes and thrusts by hands and feet as well as weapons defenses are a part of judo, but only in pre-arranged forms (kata,) and are not allowed in judo competition or free practice. A judo practitioner is called a judoka.
