If your new to Judo? It is the study of human balance. To overtake, as GENTLY as possible without striking or kicking. " How can a woman so small off-balance a man Twice her size?" Through study of Judo. JU-DO means " GENTLE- WAY" . We have found in Judos historic study that woman seem to learn Judo faster then men. Men tend to use there mighty strenght and woman learn technique ( without as much strenght) much quicker. For example, Look at Kayla Harrison. First American Womans Olympic Gold Medalist in JUDO'S history so far 2012. No American man has achieve Gold in Olympic Judo History .
I take my hat off for Jason Morris, American Olympic Silver Medalist 1992 & Jimmy Pedro, American Olympic Bronze medalist 1996.
