Judo is a Grappling martial art and Olympic sport created in Japan in 1882 by Jigoro Kano. At Grappling Mastery, we use Judo for it’s effective throws and takedowns using the Gi. It transitions perfectly for those who want to compete in BJJ and are looking for a way to take an opponent to the ground while remaining on top. It is similar to Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in it’s use of immobilizing joint locks and chokes, while also similar to Wrestling in its effectiveness in throws.
