Judo is a military sport in the Conseil International du Sport Militaire (CISM). Judo (meaning „gentle way“) is a modern martial art, combat and Olympic sport created in
Japan in 1882 by Jigoro Kano. 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. Strikes and thrusts by hands and feet as well as weapons defenses are a part of judo, but only
in pre-arranged forms (kata) and are not allowed in judo competition or free practice (randori). A judo practitioner is called a judoka.

The philosophy and subsequent pedagogy developed for judo became the model for other modern Japanese martial arts that developed from koryū (traditional schools). The worldwide spread
of judo has led to the development of a number of offshoots such as Sambo and Brazilian jiu-jitsu.
