Dear Editor, judo is a popular and commonly practiced Japanese martial art and an Olympic combat sport. Judo has its roots in Japanese unarmed fighting styles from the sixth century, the forerunners to ju-jitsu, and was founded by Jigoro Kano in 1882 in Tokyo. It is a martial art, a physical education, an Olympic sport, and a way of life. It is characterized by a great number of techniques and its history, culture and philosophical basis. Currently the International Judo Federation estimates 20 million participants.
