Ep 7 - Judo

Judo originated from Japan in 1882 at a time when jujitsu was declining in popularity. It was founded by Kano Jigoro who had begun by studying the various forms of Jujitsu. He then started introducing his ideas and inspirations with his own wide-ranging improvements, as well as new techniques and a teaching system which he felt was more suited to the needs of modern people.

Rock climbing as a sport did not begin till the 1880?s when it started in Great Britain, Germany and Italy and spread across Europe and America. Mountaineers wanted to train and practice specific ascension techniques without having to go all of the way up a peak. They started climbing cliffs and rocks closer to where they lived, and this started off rock climbing as a separate discipline.
