Judo

Judo is an optional sport on the Commonwealth Games programme and Glasgow 2014 was only the third time Judo had featured at a Commonwealth Games, following its debut in Auckland 1990 and its second appearance at Manchester 2002. Judo is once again included for Birmingham 2022.

Judo was created in 1882 by Professor Jigoro Kano. Derived from the martial arts, judo became an official Olympic sport in 1964. Judo’s popularity has grown throughout the Commonwealth and is a highly physical sport with a strong ethical code and guiding philosophy. The aim is to score points by throwing the opponent to the ground or by immobilising them with arm locks, holds or strangles.

Judo made its Commonwealth Youth Games debut at Bahamas 2017.

Commonwealth Games Judo competition is conducted under the rules of the International Judo Federation (IJF)
