Duration: 90 min; Free; Got beef with someone who just keeps getting on your nerves? Get that pest off your back after learning the "gentle way" of judo, a modern martial art and combat sport originating in Japan! You'll embrace the competitive element of judo, wherein the objective is to either throw or takedown your opponent to the ground. The philosophy of judo is to adjust to and evade an opponent's attack, lessening your challenger's power and balance. This makes it possible for weaker opponents to outdo significantly stronger ones. So it doesn't matter if that guy who keeps stealing your lunch money is almost a foot taller than you are! With judo, size doesn't matter -- may the strongest and most agile one win!
