About Judo

Judo is an unarmed Olympic combat sport that demands both physical prowess and great mental discipline. It was founded by Jigoro Kano in Japan in the 1880s and has grown in popularity to become one of the most popular individual sports across the globe. Judo translates into English as “the gentle way“.

 

Judo is the only martial art currently a part of the Paralympics. Visually Impaired or ‘VI’ Judo is a specially adapted form of judo for individuals with visual and other impairments.

 

What do I need to try Judo?

All you need to try judo is baggy/loose old clothing (something you don’t mind stretching) or basic gym kit – a t-shirt and jogging bottoms. Most judo clubs have a judo jacket they can loan to you for your first session, after which you may choose to purchase a basic judo kit called a judogi (available from JudoStore).
