Welcome to Wikiversity's Division of Judo

Start the page name for a department with the "Topic:" prefix; departments reside in the Topic: namespace. Wikiversity departments can be "contained" (linked to) by multiple schools. If two schools link to the same department they should cooperate to develop the department. See: Wikiversity:Naming conventions.

Judo (柔道, jūdō?, "gentle way") is a martial art, combat sport, and philosophy which originated in Japan. One of the distinguishing characteristics of Judo as compared to many other martial arts is that the primary goal in a Judo competition is to throw one's opponent to the ground; kicks, punches, and other strikes are not allowed in Judo competition or sparring (known as randori). Judo was founded by Dr. Jigoro Kano in 1882. The sport became the model for the modern Japanese martial arts, gendai budo, developed from old koryu schools. Practitioners of judo are called judoka.

This division of Wikiversity is meant to promote all aspects of the systematic study of Judo as a mental, physical, and moral art, science and sport.

The "topic" namespace contains pages that are for management and organization of small academic units at Wikiversity such as departments (see: Wikiversity:Topics).

Learning projects[edit]

See: Learning Projects and the Wikiversity:Learning model.

Learning materials and learning projects are located in the main Wikiversity namespace. Simply make a link to the name of the learning project (learning projects are independent pages in the main namespace) and start writing! We suggest the use of the learning project template (use "subst:Learning project boilerplate" on the new page, inside the double curved brackets {{}}).

Learning materials and learning projects can be used by multiple departments. Cooperate with other departments that use the same learning resource.

Remember, Wikiversity has adopted the "learning by doing" model for education. Lessons should center on learning activities for Wikiversity participants. We learn by doing.

Select a descriptive name for each learning project. Learning projects can be listed in alphanumeric order by code, however code numbers are optional.
