London Olympics: JudoThe London 2012 Olympic Judo programme - which offers spectators short but sharp five-minute bouts - will be held at the ExCeL Centre in the River Zone from Saturday 28 July until Friday 3 August. Developed from Jujitsu and with its origins in nineteenth-century Japan, Judo is a pretty complicated sport for those not in the know. Basically, the aim is to score an "ippon" over your opponent - the one point which automatically wins a match. This can be obtained with a controlled throw, a mat hold of sufficient duration or an enforced submission. Alternatively, matches can be won with two half-points, or "waza-ari". If the games are tied after five minutes, then the contest enters a golden score period where even the lowest form of scoring, a "yuko", is enough to settle the bout. It's a one-on-one tactical and intricate sport in which opponents, dressed in pyjama-style outfits tied at the waist by a belt, grapple in both attack and defence. There are seven different weight divisions for both men and women, and all events are played in a knock-out format. Men's Judo made its Olympic debut in Tokyo 1964 with the women's event joining the Games in Barcelona 1992.
