Commonwealth guides: Judo

Jo Melen, judo silver medalist in Manchester 2002 - the last time judo featured in the Commonwealth Games - gives a guide to the sport.

Judo is a martial art steeped in Japanese tradition and requires physical strength, gymnastic-like contortions and tactical positioning. Melen describes it as a "physical game of chess".
