Description :

Judo is one of only two martial arts that are Olympic sports (the other is TaeKwon Do). In Judo, the object is to throw one’s opponent to the ground, immobilize or subdue the opponent by using a grappling maneuver, joint lock or choke. Unlike other martial arts, kicks, punches and thrusts are not allowed in competition or freestyle practice.
In English, Judo is translated as “the gentle way” – instead of meeting force with force, this refers to the principle of using one's opponent's strength against him and adapting well to changing circumstances.
For example, if the attacker pushes against his opponent, he would find his opponent stepping to the side and allowing (often with the aid of a foot to trip him up) his momentum to throw him forwards (the inverse being true for pulling).
Judo throws employ leverage rather than pure strength; a competitor can pull an opponent off-balance or get below the opponent’s center of gravity to toss him or her to the ground.
This sport, developed by Kano Jigoro in the mid 19th century, has many similarities to the ancient art of jujitsu. But unlike older martial arts, which have the sole purpose of combat fighting, judo offers a holistic approach to life that extends far beyond martial arts training.

    And in my opinion, the Clans in Clash Royale tend to be more accessible than their alternatives in Clash of Clans although they perhaps generate monetisation that is less.

    Excellent blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers? I'm planning to start my own blog soon but I'm a little lost on everything. Would you recommend starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I'm completely confused .. Any recommendations? Thank you!
