Most people have heard of Judo, along with Karate and Kung Fu it’s probably one of the most heard of Martial Arts in the Western World, but not many people really know what it is and why Judoka love the sport so much. At it’s heart, Judo is a modern Japanese martial art and combat sport created in Japan in 1882 by Dr Kano Jigoro. The idea is to throw your opponent on their back, pin them or subdue them using joint locks and pins. Kano created the combat sport of Judo so that the martial art could be practised at full force whilst maintaining the safety of the fighters. Because of this, Judo is considered to be one of the most effective martial arts for self defence. It encourages hard work and self discipline, the only way to become successful is through practice and regular training. For this reason it is also perfect for children and being an Olympic sport, there is a solid infrastructure to help kids become World Champions. It is also ideally suited to the modern sport of MMA as it concentrates on take downs and ground work.

Chelsie Giles (-52kg) displayed a good combination of her tachiwaza skill alongside contest management on her way to a place on the podium. After an opening victory over Marianna Mamitova (RUS) by waza-ari she was defeated by Japan’s Kana Tomizawa with just 25 seconds left on the clock.
Giles defeated her second Russian opponent of the day in Anastasiia Gomozkova by ippon with her next contest with Jorien Visser (NED) going the distance before the British judoka was able to throw her opponent for ippon 20 seconds into golden score.
The set-up a bronze medal contest with another Russian Anastasya Turcheva and after going behind by yuko early on Giles was able to respond with two yukos of her own. The British judoka was then able to hold off a late charge by the Russian despite conceding three shidos.
Chelsie is currently in Japan for two weeks intensive training
