Jigoro Kano "Judo is the way to use most efficiently one's mental and physical strength."
Professor Jigoro Kano,
the founder of Judo.
Jita Kyoei Seiryoku Zenyo Judo is practiced and enjoyed by children, men, and women of all ages. Judo is many things to different people. It is a sport, an art, a discipline, a recreational or social activity; a keep fit program, a means of self defense, and a way of life. It is to some extent all of these, but to most participants, it is an Olympic sport.

Judo became a part of Olympic Games in 1964 and since then it is a second most popular sport in the world.
