Judo, often referred to as the Gentle Way. It is an athletic evolution of Japanese Jujutsu, developed by Jigoro Kano in 1882, as a physical, mental and moral pedagogy. In 1964, it became the first Japanese Martial Art to be recognized as an official Olympic sport. Since then, Judo’s popularity has grown to such a degree that it has been reported to be the world's second most popular sport after Soccer. It is, however, much more than just a sport. As a Martial Art, Judo encourages personal development and emphasizes the importance of respect, discipline, and humility.
