Judo (meaning "gentle way") is a modern martial art, combat and Olympic sport created in Japan. Its most prominent feature is its competitive element, where the objective is to either throw or takedown an opponent to the ground, immobilize or otherwise subdue an opponent with a pin, or force an opponent to submit with a joint lock or a choke. Strikes and thrusts by hands and feet as well as weapons defenses are a part of judo, but only in pre-arranged forms and are not allowed in judo competition or free practice.
Karate has developed from a need to survive and thus we are entrusted with a legacy not to be disregarded. Never allow techniques developed out of life and death situations to become a show or performance. Always reflect back to the origins when training, using sober thought to develop character, humbleness, respect and etiquette. These values are to be emphasised over technique.
