What is Judo?
Judo originated in Japan as a derivative o the various martial arts developed and used by the samurai and feudal warrior class over hundreds of years. The techniques of Judo were modified so that Judo students can practice and apply these techniques safely and without hurting opponents: Judo does not involve kicking, punching, or striking techniques of any kind. Judo does not involve the application of pressure against the joints to throw an opponent. Judo involves no equipment or weapons of any sort. Instead, Judo simply involves two individuals who, by gripping the Judo uniform or Judogi, use the forces of balance, power, and movement to attempt to subdue each other. Thus, it is simple and basic.
