Judo is many things...

It is a fun sport, an art, a discipline, a recreational or social activity, a fitness program, a means of self defense or combat, and a way of life.  It is all of these and more.

Kodokan Judo comes to us from the fighting system of feudal Japan.  Founded in 1882 by Dr. Jigoro Kano, judo is a refinement of the ancient martial art of Jujitsu.  Dr. Kano, President of the University of Education, Tokyo, studied these ancient forms and integrated what he considered to be the best of their techniques into what is now the modern sport of Judo.

Judo was introduced into the Olympic Games in 1964 and is practiced by millions of people throughout the world today.  People practice judo to excel in competition, to stay in shape, to develop self confidence, and for many other reasons.
