Judo

Judo is a fairly new Japanese martial art, created at the end of the 19th century. Gradually, his philosophy and the methods used became known to people around the world. This art was created on the basis of jujitsu. In judo, various types of punches, painful techniques and throws are used.

Unlike other percussion martial arts, such as boxing or karate, judo focuses on fighting rather than punches. Judo differs from other styles of wrestling in a more diverse technique.

The goals of judo are both the physical preparation of students, the training of their combat, and the preparation of the student’s consciousness for battle. Judo’s philosophy is mutual assistance and understanding, as well as the most effective use of their physical and spiritual abilities.

Now at the same time there is a development of two areas of this martial art – traditional and sports judo. The traditional version is more suitable for those who want to study the philosophical component of martial arts, the use of various martial arts techniques for self-defense. The sports option is more suitable for those who are attracted to the competition. In addition, there are differences in the rules and techniques in these styles.

Judo began its development at a time when the Japanese leadership in the 80s of the 19th century introduced Western culture and art in the country, and Japan’s traditional martial arts were recognized as barbarism. Traditional martial arts masters could not deal with students, were in distress.

The founder of judo is considered to be Jigoro Kano. This is a significant public figure in Japan, who was awarded the Order of the Rising Sun for his services. He developed a new combat system called judo. The main thing in a new kind of martial arts

Jigoro Kano proclaimed the desire for self-improvement, and not the technique of battle. This system, in contrast to the rather cruel jujutsu, was created in a fairly peaceful way, the most stringent tricks were excluded from the new martial arts. The most dangerous techniques are studied, but not allowed for use in competitions. New martial arts began to gain popularity, because After Western influence on culture, many Japanese began to consider the old military disciplines too rude and bloodthirsty for educated and cultured people.

The first judo school was just over 20 m2, but it soon became very popular. By the beginning of the 20th century, the technique and rules of the new martial arts competition were developed. Judo was included in the curriculum of naval specialties, and later this discipline was included in the school curriculum of all comprehensive schools. Thus, judo became very popular in Japan.

Also, from the beginning of the last century, martial arts stepped outside the country – to the USA, England and France.

Also at this time, the founder of this type of martial arts began to represent Japan in the International Committee of the Olympic Games. Jigoro Kano created the Japanese sports community, which he himself led. In addition, Kano was founded the martial arts section for women.

The activities of Kano led him to parliament – he became one of the members of the upper house. Throughout his life, Kano worked to develop his style around the world. Tsuneo Tomita’s book, which formed the basis of Kurosawa’s film “Judo Genius,” also helped in the dissemination and popularization of judo.

During the Second World War, the consequences of which were more than devastating for Japan, the victors of the war banned martial arts training in the country. When the ban was lifted, this martial art again entered the school curriculum.

Judo became world famous after it became one of the Olympic sports in 1964.
