JUDO

Judo is what one calls a modern martial art. It is classified under combat and is an Olympic sport.

History
Judo was created in 1882, by Jigoro Kano in Japan. Its main feature is its aggressive component. The goal is to toss or humble a challenger to the ground, stop or otherwise control a rival with a pin, or force an opponent to yield with a joint lock or a choke. Weapons as well as hands and feet are used in thrusts and strikes in Judo, but not allowed in free practice or competition. Judo is now popular worldwide and also has many offshoots like the Sambo and Brazilian jiu-jitsu.

Olympics
Contest is a significantly key facet of judo. Judo came to the Olympic Games first as an informal demonstration at the 1932 Games. In the 1964 Tokyo Games, Judo finally was recognised as an event for men. In 1968, Judo was first dropped but included again and it was a Dutch competitor, Anton Geesink, who defeated his Japanese rival Akio Kaminaga to win. The women's event came to Olympics in 1988 as a demonstration event, and a medal event in 1992. Judo is one of the events at the Special Olympics as also Paralympic judo, at the Paralympic sport for the visually impaired since 1988.
