Judo is a self-defense combat sport in which the primary aim in a competitive context is to either throw or takedown an opponent to the ground, or subdue the opponent with a pin or chokehold. The sport focuses on maximizing the efficiency with minimum effort; in other words, defeating the opponent through evading the opponent's attack and manipulating balance and grip rather that raw combative strength.
Judo originated in Japan, developing from different schools of jujutsu. It was first seen at the 1932 Summer Olympics in an informal demonstration, and officially became an Olympic sport for men in the Tokyo 1964 Summer Games. The women's events were introduced in 1992.
