When Judo and Physics Go Head-to-Head

What's the secret behind performing judo moves properly? Why is it so important to fall down correctly? There are some fascinating scientific phenomena behind it all so come on, it's time to get some first-hand experience!

Judo is a modern Japanese martial art that combines elements of physical fitness, coordination, and discipline. In Japanese, the word "judo" means "the soft way". During this workshop, we will learn how is it that while we are practicing judo moves, rolls and falls, we are also experimenting with scientific phenomena and laws from the worlds of physics, biology, and even chemistry.
