Judo is one of the most popular martial arts on the planet, focusing heavily on standing grappling in the gi with only limited time spent on the ground. It was originally created all the way back in 1882 by Jigoro Kano and has since grown into an Olympic sport. It was first introduced as part of the Olympic games in 1964 and is contested across several different weight classes for both men and women. Training in Judo is common among BJJ practitioners as it allows them to develop their standing grappling, and in many cases it has been a gateway into the sport for elite competitors.
