About Judo

Judo is a Japanese sport and Kodokan Judo was first established in Japan in 1882 by Professor Jigorō Kanō. The term judo translates to ‘the gentle way’, ‘ju’ meaning ‘gentle’ and ‘do’ meaning ‘the way’, ‘the way’ being the concept of life itself.

Judo Moral Code: Politeness, Courage, Sincerity, Self-Control, Honour, Modesty, Friendship, Respect

In Judo we learn to throw each other (Tachiwaza) in a controlled and safe way which leads into groundwork (Newaza) where we learn turnovers and hold-downs. At the senior level, we also learn how to attain submissions.

The place where judo training occurs is called a ‘dojo’, which literally means a ‘place to learn the way’.  The traditional dojo is floored with mats called ‘tatami’.  The Randori Dojo is not just a place to come and learn about the technical aspects of judo – it is a place to learn about the way of judo.
