What is Judo?

Judo was founded in 1882 by Dr Jigoro Kano and traces its roots to Jujutsu.  The formation of Judo as a sport resulted from Dr. Kano’s studies of ancient martial arts and taking of the best of those techniques. The translation of Judo from Japanese means “Gentle Way” (Gentler than the martial arts that it was developed from). Judo teaches the use of balance, speed, timing and technique to overcome an opponent, rather than relying on brute force.

Judo is a now a sport in both the Olympics and Paralympics. It was first seen in the Olympics at the Tokyo games in 1964.

Is Judo a Good sport for my kids?
judokids Judo is an inexpensive, year-round activity that develops self-discipline, respect for one-self and others as well as self-confidence. It is an excellent sport for children because it develops physical skills such as coordination and agility which can be transferred to other sports.
Will I get hurt?
Judo is a contact sport, and as a result there is always a chance that a player may get injured. However, the chances of getting seriously injured in Judo is no greater than, and perhaps less, than in other sports such as Basketball or Football. Judo training focuses on developing your ability to fall properly and reduce the chances of injury, as well as improving conditioning,  strength, agility and flexibility. Judo has strict  rules that help ensure the safety of participants in competition. Also, in competition there are separate weight, age, and skill level divisions for men and women, and boys and girls. This helps ensure that players are as evenly matched as possible.
Am I too old for Judo?
No. Judo is a sport that is practiced by people of all ages. Unlike many sports, men, women and children can participate together in developing their skills and understanding of the sport. It is not unusual to find families of Judoka (judo players) within a club. The youngest may start at 4 or 5 years of age, while many recreational and competitive Judoka can be found in their 50’s and 60’s and older.
Can I take Judo just for fun?
Absolutely. There are Millions of people who take judo for reasons other than competition. The reasons many people get involved in recreational judo is for fitness, developing self-confidence, self-defence, and as a social activity.
What are the Judo belts?
Judo has ranks signified by coloured belts. These colours follow the Judo Canada grading syllabus, and indicate the level of skill and understanding the person has in Judo. Once a Judoka reaches the level of Black Belt, there are 10 more degrees which further indicate knowledge and understanding of the sport.
