Judo (meaning "gentle way") was created as a physical, mental and moral pedagogy in Japan, in 1882, by Jigoro Kano. It is generally categorized as a modern martial art which later evolved into a combat and Olympic sport. 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.

BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is a Martial Art and combat sport that focuses on Grappling. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu promotes the principle that the smaller, weaker person can successfully defend themselves against a bigger, stronger assailant using leverage and proper technique, applying submissions via joint-locks and chokeholds to defeat them. BJJ can be trained for self-defense, sport grappling tournaments (Gi and no-Gi) and Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) competition, and is becoming a more popular method among students looking to improve physical fitness, core strength, stability and flexibility.
It consists of a combination of graceful, flowing movements in rhythmic harmony with breath and mind. As a moving meditation, it motivates the body to self-induce healing and free itself from stress.
Krav Maga is roughly translated from Hebrew to mean “close quarter fighting.” It is a highly effective martial art that utilizes a combination of strikes, grapples, throws, locks and holds. Krav Maga originated from street fighting techniques of Jewish gangs defending themselves in the tough ghettos of Bratislav in the 1930s. Krav Maga was developed in Czechoslovakia in the 1930’s by Imi Lichtenfeld. After the nation of Israel was born, Krav Maga was adapted and further developed by the Israeli security forces.
