Vector International Sports Ground

Promoting Sports, Talent and Fitness

Message From Our Founder

Games not only help in body building but also in the development of one's character and personality. They form an essential input for the health of a nation.

Judo enables men and women to defend themselves unarmed in different situations and build self confidence. There is a need to popularize this game not only in cities but in rural areas as well.

I am glad to announce that Vector International Sports has taken an initiative to start Judo in its premises. This will enable the lovers of Judo to see the best of the game and attract many more young men and women to adopt it as a sport and a means of self-defense.

About Judo

According to Dr. Jigoro Kano, the founder of Kodokan JUDO:

"JUDO is the most effective use of both physical and spiritual strength. By training you in attacks and defenses it refines your body and soul and helps you to make the spiritual essence of JUDO a port of your very being. In  this way you are able to perfect yourself and contribute something of value to the world. This is the final goal of Judo discipline."

Any one who intends to follow the way of JUDO must above all install this teaching in his heart.

What is Judo?

In simple words Judo is the game of:

  • Falling and Throwing
  • Pulling and Pushing
  • Grappling and Lifting
  • Chocking and Locking

Judo (meaning "gentle way") was created as a physical, mental and moral pedagogy in Japan, in 1882, by Jigoro Kano. Dr. Jigoro Kano who started Judo as a sports in 1882 had to spend four years of patience and hard Labour before he established its superiority over Ju-Jutsu in 1886 Kodakan meet.

Judo has three feature:

  1. The competitive element which encouraged it to become a full fledged sport.
  2. The philosophy that judo is a preparation for life and not solely a sport.
  3. As a technical aspect, the principle of 'Kuzushi, getting a opponent off-balance in order to throw him.


Development of JUDO

Dr. Kano was eager that Judo should be expanded overseas. A number of his pupils founded schools in other countries. The first school was started in USA sin 1902, in Australia in 1928 and in Africa in 1931. The first club in Europe was founded in 1918, 'The Budokwai' in London. It was at the request of the Japanese that Judo figured amongst the events at the 1964 Olympics held in Tokyo. 
JUDO as Self-defense

The most dedicated official, however, has to a free that JUDO is a form of self-defense, as Boxing, Wrestling and Karate. The real question is how effective is it? Stories and myths have grown up over the years as to the effectiveness of the various methods of unarmed combat. The only thing that one can state with real certainty is that one is better-off being an expert in one or more of these methods of self-defense. All these methods have their defects in a street fight. Thus, a boxer will be highly expert with his fists by unskilled at defending against a 'Karateka' kicks or throws of a wrestler or 'Judoka'. Similarly a 'Karateka' has no experience of ground work with arm locks and strangles, whilst a wrestler or Judoka has to run the gauntlet of punches or kicks. Under compelling situations a Judo fighter has the expertise of throws, armlock, strangles, and hold-down to attack the opponent, still Judo self-defense teaches only safety to oneself without harming the opponent.

JUDO as a Sport

The objective of a Judo Competition is to throw one's opponent cleanly, hold him immobile on his back for thirty seconds, force him to submit through the pressure of armlock or strangles (two quick taps indicate a submission). One point or "IPPON" decides a contest, because theory is that a single clean throw, a strangle or hold-down could disable a person.
Ways to win a JUDO match

Judo match is won in four ways:

  • A properly executed high throw "NAGE WAZA" dropping the opponent onto his back or side.
  • An immobilization hold on the mat called an OSAEKOMI is which a man is held under control on his back for a period of 25 seconds.
  • A choke "SHIME WAZA" directed against the blood vessels of the neck causing the opponent to lose consciousness or to submit.
  • A joint lock "GYAKU WAZA" direccted against the elbow causing the opponent to submission to avoid fractured arm.

JUDO starting age

There is no unanimity as to the starting age of judoka. Several doctors and experts in this field suggested different age to start wrestling. There is no rule which establishes the lowest age to start wrestling. It means it is left on the direction of coach. The coach has to decide it by seeing the growth and overall development of an individual.

JUDO Charms Women

The global reply from fair sex is affirmative, none-the less the India housewives, mother, sisters and daughters may amazingly shake their heads admitting the anonymous benefits and need of this "flexible way". This fact is mostly non-descriptive in nature owning to the sophisticated social customs of the country. The remarkable enthusiasm and enjoyment shown by the ladies and the sharp increase in participation in National Judo Championships for women reflects that prospects of Women's Judo in India is very encouraging and the popularity of Judo among girls is in rapid progress.

In today's world the women live a life of risk. The fear and apprehension looms large over the head of every young woman. The plight and predicament of young ladies is probably at its lowest ebb. Not a single passes without the news of woman getting raped, tortured, molested or ill treated by men folk. But on some rare occasion we hear or read that a molester has been caught by damsel or an eve teaser is subdued by the valor of maiden. Judo is most possible means to make a lady courageous and strong. The philosophy behind judo, the converted form of oriental martial arts, is not exclusively the art of self-defense as it is generally believed, but this is an art which first of all instill a sense of self confidence and courage and once the self confidence is inculcated nothing appears impossible. In this context the future of women's Judo is promising and above all, being the saviour too, Judo will charm the women mass with its savour sooner or later.

Purpose of JUDO

Judo is a sport. The purpose of every sport is mainly recreation and also physical development. Apart from this, we can satisfy our fighting instinct on the mat by practicing judo. Judo has many advantages. It helps in the following ways: 

  • Development of Body: Regular practice of judo exercises and techniques stimulate body muscles and gives strength. It also well shaped the body. It brings agility in the body and also sharpens the reflexes of human body.
  • Development of mind: It has been notices that after practicing Judo for a long time, a Judoka gets mental balance. His attitude changes towards living. He learns to respect his seniors and start understanding the word 'LEARNING' (which is a process). Learning Judo brings superiority and this helps a Judoka to be cool because he knows that he is superior to an ordinary person. All these factors result in the development of mind.
  • Self Defense: A Judoka learns self defense automatically by learning Judo techniques. During the practice he has to face the attacks of his opponent and has to defend himself from those attacks.
  • Recreation: It is needless to mention that a Judoka gets lot of pleasure by practicing judo. Almost daily we gather at common place for practice. We develop human relations and we throw each other in friendly manner without any grudge. Learning of new things and applying to each other in a friendly manner gives enjoyment and pleasure.
  • Instinct of Fighting: Every human has this instinct. Instead of fighting on the roads for superfluous things, judo provides us the facility of satisfying this instinct on the mats. When we do Randori or Shiahi we get a chance to satisfy our instinct of fighting.
