Judo, the ancient Japanese art of self-defence without weapons, has become a modern-day sport that today finds a wide following throughout the world. In clubs in Australia, Britain, France, Canada and even remote Afghanistan, the white-garbed members practice the art of turning an adversary's strength against himself.
