Judo (柔道), meaning "gentle way" in Japanese, is a modern martial art and combat sport that originated in Japan in the late 19th century. Practitioners, known as judoka, aim to throw their opponents to the ground or immobilize them through grappling techniques. Unlike many other martial arts, Judo does not involve striking or kicking techniques. Instead, it relies on throws, joint locks, and pins to overcome an adversary.

Judo training is not solely focused on physical techniques but also encompasses mental and ethical development. It places a strong emphasis on discipline, respect, and mutual welfare. Practitioners are encouraged to cultivate a sense of self-control and to use their skills responsibly, both on and off the mat. This holistic approach to training helps judoka develop not only physical strength but also mental resilience and emotional well-being.

Beyond its physical and competitive aspects, Judo instills valuable life lessons and promotes personal growth. The practice of Judo teaches individuals to overcome adversity, persevere through challenges, and develop resilience in the face of defeat. It fosters a sense of camaraderie and sportsmanship, as judoka learn to appreciate their opponents' skills and achievements.
