In this section you will find videos of the most basic judo techniques. Judo is a Japanese martial art founded by Jigoro Kano in 1882. Most of the techniques shown in this section were taped at the Japanese Budo Center in Vientiane, Laos. For now, we only have videos of throwing and grappling techniques. Originally I wanted to film these video instructions in Japan, but the guys in Vientiane were pretty amazing, so I postponed the trip to Japan and you will have to wait for more detailed instructions, and traditional, non-competitive techniques. Find animated, interactive judo instruction on the judo main page.
