Judo means the “Gentle Way” in Japanese. “Maximum Efficiency with Minimum Effort,” and “Mutual Welfare and Benefit for All” are important components of the judo philosophy.

Judo was developed in Japan from the Martial Art of Ju-Jitsu about 125 years ago and emphasizes controlling your opponent without injuring them, through throws, pins and—for advanced competitors —the submission techniques of chokes and arm-bars. In creating judo, the dangerous techniques of Ju-Jitsu were avoided, creating a system that is extremely safe yet, still extremely effective.
