In 1882, Judo (meaning "gentle way") was created as a physical, mental and moral pedagogy in Japan by Jigoro Kano (1860-1938). It is generally categorized as a modern martial art which later evolved into a combat and Olympic sport. When it debuted at the 1964 Tokyo Games, it was a men-only discipline and there were just four weight classes. Since 1992, however, men and women have competed in seven weight classes each; the men’s contests last five minutes whilst women’s contests last four.They are scheduled to visit the Youth International Cooperation Development Centre and Vietnam Judo Federation, and play friendly matches with the national judo team and other judo teams in Hanoi capital and Nha Trang city in South Central coastal Khanh Hoa province.
Established by the Japanese Government, the JENESYS aims at promoting mutual trust and understanding among the peoples of Japan and the Asia-Pacific region and building a basis for future friendship and cooperation.
It also encourages an understanding and dissemination of the Land of Rising Sun’s politics, economics, society, history, diverse culture, and diplomatic relations to Vietnamese youths in particular./.
