Judo, if you have not seen it in the Olympics, relies mostly on throws and holds as opposed to the blows of karate. Kodokan, a large judo practice hall, houses the All Japan Judo Federation, which is in charge of official judo operations throughout the country. The Japanese police and self-defense forces both take basic judo training here. At Kodokan, visitors may watch judo practice sessions from above at no charge.
