Extractions: When the Olympics were held in Japan in 1964, as the hosting country, Japan was allowed to choose a sport for the games; it chose Judo. It was a great success. Judo wasnt included in the 1968 Mexico City Olympics; however, it came back permanently on the Olympic schedule in 1972. Some notable dates in Judo's Olympic history include 1988, when the open category was discontinued, and the Barcelona Games in 1992 marked the first time judo was open to women.
History Of Judo The history of judo. The Kodokan was founded in 1882 by the late judo became an official event in the. olympic Games of 1964, backed by judo fans http://www.kodokan.org/e_basic/history.html
Extractions: The History of Judo The Kodokan was founded in 1882 by the late Prof. Kano who himself had established Judo. Judo was derived from Jujitsu which had many names and schools. Jujitsu is an art for either attacking others or defending oneself with nothing but one's own body. Prof. Kano adopted the superlative parts of all the Jujitsu schools, got rid of precarious parts, and established the new Kodokan Judo based on his own insight and arrangement. It started with only nine disciples and a twelve-mat dojo. The Kodokan Judo was recognized in a few years to be excellent since its students overwhelmed the Jujitsu athletes at the Police Bujitsu Contest. This really was the first step for its future rapid progress. Prof. Kano promoted judo as a physical exercise from a wide national point of view. Proceeding with the organization of the Kodokan and enacting the regulations of Judo, he became the first Asian member of the International Olympic Committee in 1909 and worked for the spread of Judo world-wide.

Extractions: Sponsored by The Decathlon in Olympic History Table of Contents: The Jim Thorpe Story When King Gustav V of Sweden presented awards at the 1912 Olympic Games of Stockholm, he proclaimed to the decathlon winner, an American Indian named Jim Thorpe, as the world's top athlete. "You sir, are the world's greatest athlete." Incidentally, Jim is purported to have replied, "Thanks, King" to the Swedish monarch, a story, true or not, which itself has become part of the Thorpe saga. Ever since, the Olympic decathlon champion or world record holder has been dubbed "the World's Greatest Athlete." And rightly so, since the decathlon is the only objective test of all around athletic ability. Decathletes must contest ten separate events and have those performances tallied on a standard scoring table. The decathlon measures basic sporting ability like jumping, sprinting and throwing. Within the backdrop and rules of track and field, decathlon champions must exhibit, the 4 S's: speed, spring, strength and stamina. Since 1912 great decathlon champions like Bob Mathias, Rafer Johnson, Bruce Jenner and Daley Thompson and others have become household names. But they all owe much to the legend of Thorpe.
Extractions: From John Goodbody in Sydney The female icon of Japanese sport has done it at last by winning the Olympic title for the country that invented judo and regards it as their own. If Ian Thorpes gold medals were greeted with a mixture of delight and relief by Australia, then the victory of Ryoko Tamura generated similar emotions in Japan. Her triumph was headline news in Tokyo yesterday, as newspapers and television stations greeted her win with uncharacteristic fervor. The 10,000-capacity judo hall was packed with seemingly every Japanese person in the southern hemisphere, as spectators and more than 150 television cameramen and photographers struggled for access. Judo is the only sport Japan has given to the Games, according it special status in that country. However, Tamuras fame is founded on a newspaper cartoon strip, Yawara-chan, based partly on her life, in which a tiny girl once beat up thugs on the streets. As a teenager, Tamura, her pig-tails kept in place by red bows, once routed five boys in a fracas. The cartoon is a curious interweaving of fact and fantasy.

Extractions: Home Upcoming Events Articles Shiai Results Player Profile Sensei's Corner IJF Pic of the Month Club Directory Guestbook Contact Us Links Membership Form The Meiji Period (1868-1912) of Japanese history was an era of immense change. Japan had closed its doors to the West some two centuries earlier under the power of the ruling Shogunate, causing Japan to remain virtually unchanged during this period both politically and industrially. However, after numerous unsuccessful attempts to establish trade with the Japanese throughout the mid-nineteenth century by a number of Western nations, the United States finally managed to establish a foothold at the Dutch-maintained trading post of Deshima in Nagasaki. This occurred as a result of two notable expeditions. The first was led by Commodore James Biddle in 1846, and the second by Commodore James Glynn in 1849. Although it was the arrival of Commodore Matthew Perry in 1853, that permanently set the wheels of change in motion. Perry brought word from then U.S. President, Millard Fillmore, demanding that Japan establish trading and diplomatic relations between the two nations. Fillmore also threatened the use of force if these terms were not met. As a result, a treaty of amity was signed by the following year between the U.S. and Japan. This effectively ended the isolation from the West that had lasted since 1639. Similar treaties followed with Britain, France, Russia, and the Netherlands, thus beginning Japan's rapid modernization.

Extractions: In 1937, the Police School at San Jose State University saw the advantages of Judo and added the sport to their curriculum. In 1940 they asked Yosh Uchida to teach the class as a student coach. Uchida taught for 2 years before entering the Service in 1942. Upon his return in 1946, he resumed his teaching career at San Jose State on a part-time basis, while pursuing his degree in biology. In 1964, Judo became recognized as an Olympic sport and Yosh Uchida became the first U.S. Olympic Judo Coach. Two of the four U.S. Olympic Team Members, Ben Nighthorse Campbell and Paul Maruyama, were coached by Uchida at San Jose State. Ben Nighthorse Campbell is now a U.S. Senator representing the state of Colorado. Paul Maruyama is now a retired Air Force Colonel and coached the 1980 and 1984 U.S. Olympic Judo Teams In 1975, women were added to the Judo program. As a team, the men and women at San Jose State University have set the pace for U.S. Judo and have become a leader in the sport both nationally and internationally. Coach Yosh Uchida's collegiate record is phenomenal. The San Jose State University Judo Team has won 36 out of 39 National Collegiate Team Titles. At the international scene, San Jose State University judokas have gained more medals (Olympic, World Championship, World University Game and Pan American Game Medals) than the rest of the United States.

Extractions: Judo is a martial art that was born in Japan, and it is now known around the world as an Olympic sport. Judo was established in 1882 by combining jujitsu, a form of wrestling, with mental discipline. The roots of jujitsu lie in sumo , which has a long, long history; sumo is mentioned in the Nihon shoki (Chronicle of Japan), a document from 720 that describes the history of Japan from the mythical age of the gods until the time of Empress Jito, who reigned from 686 to 697. From the twelfth to the nineteenth century Japan was ruled by the samurai, a class of professional soldiers. This provided fertile ground for various martial arts to develop. In addition to fighting with swords and bows and arrows, the samurai developed jujitsu to fight enemies at close quarters on the battlefield. Several different styles of jujitsu evolved, and hand-to-hand combat spread as an important form of military training. The era of samurai rule came to an end with the Meiji Restoration of 1868, and Western culture began filtering in into Japanese society.
