Judo is a combat sport derived from the Martial Art of Jujitsu and concentrates on grappling, throws, submissions and immobilising your opponent. Judo is one of the few martial arts to feature in the Olympic games and is widely taught in Schools and at universities. Although taught predominantly as a sport, Judo is an effective method of self defence due to the initiative and transferable skills students gain.
