Judo, also known as “The Gentle Way”, is a martial art developed by Jigoro Kano after studying other forms of Jiu Jitsu in Japan. Judo is a grappling sport, the same as BJJ, however it focuses on standing techniques (“tachewaza”,) including throws and sweeps, but does include newaza, or ground techniques, as players transition from standing to pins or submissions.
