The "gentle way" combat returns to the big sport event
All the way back in 1964, judo already celebrated its debut at the games, back then only restricted to men. Women could compete in the sport at this massive sport event since the games in Barcelona in 1992. The sport, which originated in Japan in the 19th century, is a full-on combat sport, but "judo" actually translates to "the gentle way". Apart from physical strength, the sport demands a high amount of mental focus and vigilance. One wrong move can cost you the match by which the opponent presses down the losing judoka until defeat is admitted. Matches can go on for quite a while when the judokas try to find weak spots in their opponent’s defence to catch them off-balance. Watching them circle each other, attack and retreat is a thrilling experience, while being far less brutal than boxing, for example. In the Games, the judo tournaments are divided into weight classes, ranging from 60kg to +100kg for men and 48kg to +78kg for women. But there are also mixed team events that add a special excitement to the matches – regardless of which weight class or gender you prefer, you can find tickets for the Tokyo Games in summer 2021: Judo right here on StubHub to enjoy the thrill of experiencing the Games live.
Choose between a fast pace and a power house
The different weight classes in judo give you a range of matches to watch where the focus lies on different skills. The lightweight classes show off their agility and how quickly they can move over the mat. When you watch a heavyweight class match, be prepared for true power houses who demonstrate their muscle strength. Regardless of which one you opt for, we are sure you will enjoy the chosen match with tickets for the Tokyo Games in summer 2021: Judo. Should you not want to limit your sport entertainment to the summer, there are plenty of other sports events featured on StubHub.
