I love the martial art of judo, it's among my favorite, nd the only art I've studied. Judo is a form a Japanese martial art that involves grappling, a lot like American wrestling. It was created by Dr. Kano, Jigoro in 1882. Judo translates into "gentle way", because there is no punches or kicks involved in the art. The art is entirely throwing, sweeping, pinning, choking, and arm/leg bars, the aim of the game is to gain control of your opponents.
