What is Judo - Founded in 1882 by Professor Jigoro Kano, Judo is a self-defense derived from the ancient forms of Jiu-Jitsu. Judo uses leverage against a larger individual. Professor Kano being smaller in stature gracefully subdued his opponents with great ease with a well-performed throw. Throwing an opponent or using a diversionary technique with leverage and pinning them to the ground are some of the functions of this style. Today, Judo is used as a competitive sport as well as a great self-defense method and is universal throughout the world. It is also an Olympic Sport.
