A modern combat sport and traditional martial art practised in a dojo. Practitioners are called judokas and wear a reinforced cotton uniform called a judogi. Judokas practise judo barefoot on tatami mats that absorb impacts and whose different colours outline a square combat zone. The aim is to throw or take opponents down to the floor, to pin them or to force them to submit using strangulations or locks.
The Montreal area council of Judo Québec brings together the judo clubs of Montreal. Its mission is to help and support these clubs to develop judo in Montreal.
