Judo is a martial art that emphasizes the use of quick movement and leverage to throw an opponent. Its techniques are generally intended to turn an opponent's force to one's own advantage rather than to oppose it directly. ... It became an Olympic sport for men in 1964; women's judo was added in 1992.
