How is judo different from mixed martial arts?
One important difference is that judo is primarily defensive. It's based on using an adversary’s own energy as power to subdue them. Body throws disarm an opponent and end a conflict. However, the tools that you learn in judo do not require sparring to be effective. You'll gain balance, strength, and mental focus through the regular practice of postures and movements.
