Judo, meaning “gentle way” is a modern martial art and combat sport created in Japan in 1882 by Kano Jigoro. Judo is a great method of becoming both mentally and physically fit. Since it emphasizes physical and mental development, its influence extends to every area of a person’s life. Its physical benefits include improved flexibility, coordination, balance and reflexes. Mentally, it promotes concentration, self-confidence and leadership.
