2020 Games in Tokyo: Judo, part of Japan's cultural heritage
The exciting 2020 Games in Tokyo: Judo tickets available to buy and sell on StubHub are a unique chance to see judo come home. The modern martial art of judo was devised in Japan in 1882, not exactly as a sport, rather as an educational tool for acquiring mental, physical and moral strength. A competitive element to the practice emerged from the idea of judo as a contest fairly early in Japan but judo was not included in the Games as a sport until 1964. Ever since then, it has established itself as one of the favourite competitions. Browse the dates and available tickets on our website well in advance to avoid disappointment.
Fifteen teams including an innovative mixed team
When judo became part of the Games in 1964, there were only male competitors. Only thirty years later, in 1992, they were joined by female competitors taking part in a women-only event. At this year's Games, when you purchase 2020 Games in Tokyo: Judo tickets, you'll be able to see the first, extremely innovative mixed team event (three men, three women), as well as seven all-male and seven all-female contests, giving a chance to shine to a total of 386 competitors from around the globe. The event will be held in the iconic Nippon Budokan, a world-famous venue for judo enthusiasts, with capacity for 11,000 spectators.
Experience world-class judo in its spiritual home
Judo includes some wrestling and grappling, but it retains five underlying principles, one of which is gentleness, as the art relies on skill and balance rather than brute force, which is reflected in the meaning of the word judo itself. Judo spawned many other martial arts and is sometimes compared to karate. In the history of the Games, it has remained one of the most popular and compelling events. These sought-after tickets are high in demand, so make sure you snap up your 2020 Games in Tokyo: Judo tickets in advance.
