Judo

The modern form of Judo was developed by Professor Jigoro Kano at the end of the 19th century from the ancient martial art, jujutsu. In Judo, the aim is not only winning fights but also the training of one's body and spirit. The literal translation of Judo is "the gentle way": softness exceeds hardness in Judo, and techniques are more important than stamina.
