Judo is a system of grappling techniques including throws, attacks and defences in standing and on the ground. Unlike other fighting arts, the aim of judo is to defeat an opponent without causing any injury.
The word judo literally means the gentle way explains sensei McKenzie. It originated as a form of self-defence for monks who were not allowed to carry weapons and did not want to kill or maim others if attacked.
As a form of self-defence, judo has many advantages. The reason that judo is essential for anyone serious about defending themselves, is that physical attacks do not happen at arms length
Because it is performed with safety in mind, it has also developed into a world-wide sport…now the 2nd most practiced sport on earth behind soccer
