VIDEO: WATCH THIS! Incredible top 10 amazing powerful martial arts!
I had studied Martial Arts after watching Enter the Dragon but never really found time to compete or stay at a gym long enough to know how good I was. During my junior year I decided to drop all sports and try my hand at Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Kickboxing. Kickboxing came very easy because I already knew all the basics pretty well thanks to my many hours of study of Muay Thai and Jeet Kune Do, but Jiu-Jitsu was another story.
I got put in a pretzel, my neck cranked, fingers broken, muscles torn, but was in no mood to give up. For some reason I just wanted to keep training despite my many injuries. I finally found my niche. The one thing that I could say, “I love this”!!
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.
