What Is Judo
I ask the question "What is Judo?" because it really cheeses me off when I hear people say "that's not Judo", Because it is patently obvious that those people don't know what judo is.

More than this I am convinced that the vast majority of the Judo community have no idea exactly what it is that they have.
Most Judoka would define Judo as grappling or a set of throwing techniques.
When most of us are asked "What is the difference between Judo and other Martial Arts", we would say that Judo concentrates on throwing and has no kicking or punching in competition. One other other description I heard is, "It's like wrestling with different rules". But these, whilst they are fine for the layperson are not and should not be considered even close, as description for a seasoned judoka.
