Judo (Japanese for "gentle/flexible way") is a Japanese martial art whose principle is "victory by yielding" or "maximum effect with a minimum of effort". The martial art was invented around 1882 by Jigoro Kano as a combination of various old jiu-jitsu styles. Today, Judo is practised in over 150 countries, making it the most widespread martial art in the world.

It is suitable for self-defence, as both standing and ground situations are trained. In addition to the effect of the sport, the ten Judo values such as honesty and respect play a major role in the training due to the traditional background and interaction.

Please bring sportswear for under the judo suit and slippers, as the mats may only be stepped on barefoot and the feet should remain clean on the way between the changing room and the mat - ideally still a judogi, but if you don't have one yet, we also have some.
