Judo is a relatively young martial art.  It was developed by Professor Jigoro Kano, a Japanese educator, initially as a system of moral and physical development.

The first Judo “club” (the Kodokan) was established by Professor Kano in 1882 – much more recently than the first rugby club in New Zealand (Nelson, 1868).

Judo is practiced in a Judo Club. It involves the study and application of a wide range of techniques executed from both the standing position, and also grappling on the ground.  Striking of any nature is forbidden (no kicking or punching!)
