Judo

Judo is a martial art and has been an Olympic sport since 1964.  It was developed in Japan by Jigoro Kano as a less dangerous form of Ju-Jitsu because Ju-Jitsu uses strikes, strangles, armlocks and weapons. The name Judo means “Gentle Way” in Japanese.  It’s a good martial art to start with because the juniors in judo don’t strike each other and definitely cannot attempt strangles and armlocks until they are older, usually age 16+ or above 50kg in weight.  There are also restrictions on going up the grades in judo so children have time to learn the basics and don’t just race to their black belt without a proper grounding in etiquette, rules, regulations, safety, and techniques.
