Team GB took a team of seven judoka to Rio 2016 and will be aiming for a similarly competitive team at Tokyo 2020.

Judo will be a very important event at these games because it originally emerged from jujitsu as a martial art and was further developed as a competitive sport by Jigaro Kano, a Japanese educationalist, sport activist, and philosopher.

Combatants aim to either throw an opponent to the floor, subdue them with a pin, or force the opponent to submit with a choke or arm lock. In a display of physical strength and tactical positioning, the sport pits two athletes against each other in a contest to control and dictate the movements of the opponent.
