History of Judo

A modern Martial Art and combat sport, Judo was created in Tokyo, Japan, in 1882 by Professor Jigoro Kano.

After becoming a master of various Jujutsu styles, Jigoro Kano began developing his very own style of combat sport, which was based on at the time modern principles.

He founded the Kodokan Judo Institute in 1882, which has been the world centre of Judo ever since it is still a prestigious Judo school.

Although initially based on Jujutsu, Judo has developed into a distinct style of Martial Arts and combat sports. The word means literally gentle or yielding way, which reflects the one of its main principles.

Professor Kano put an emphasis on the educational and self development value of offense and defense training in such a way that it would improve peoples lives.

It was to be a sport everyone could participate in, as well as benefit from. For one, a victory in judo should be injury and pain free for the loser.

The main difference between Jutsu and Judo shines through in the sports names Jutsu means means or art; by changing the last syllable to do, Professor Kano changed the word to way.

This implies a more philosophical approach. An important part of Judo is a persons mental and psychological health, in addition to, of course, physical well being.

While it is an Olympic Sport, Judo is not only a combat sport. It is also a popular fitness program, an art, a social activity and a way of life, just like Professional Kano intended it to be.

Common Injuries

As in most Sports, it is important to properly warm up before practicing Judo.

Stretching is essential. While it is a very fair and non violent sport hitting and kicking are not allowed, for example practitioners may be thrown on the ground or have their limbs locked in awkward positions. 

Injuries often occur when defender instead of falling on his / her back ( which means they lose the fight ) land on their shoulder. 

Elbow dislocations are due to bad defence when the the defender leans with a bent arm.
