What is judo?
Judo is a martial art that was born in Japan, and is now known around the world as an Olympic sport. Judo was created in 1882 and is a form of close combat, with elements of mental discipline and teaching. Judo is a curriculum based sport, allowing people to grade through belts according. It was a martial art initially developed to focus on skill and technique rather than just brute strength.
Judo incorporates the use of joint locks, throws and submission techniques to subdue an opponent. Judo also teaches discipline, respect and mutual well-being. At GBTT we practice both recreationally and competitively, with a strong emphasis on sportsmanship and fair play.
Overall Judo is a sport that betters physical fitness, technique and discipline while also providing a competitive and fun outlet.
