What is Judo?
Judo means 'The Gentle Way'. It was founded in 1882 by Jigoro Kano who after studying Japanese Jiu Jitsu wanted to simplify the art form. It offers stand up 'Randori' with throws (Nage-waza)- understanding how to off balance your opponent and use their weight against them. Through to grappling (Katami-Waza) - pinning your opponent or submitting them through a number of techniques. The philosophy of Judo is 'Maximum Efficiency, Minimum Effort'.
