Abstract

Judo is a martial art and an Olympic sport combining standing and ground fighting and basically consists of grabbing and throwing the opponent on the floor [1]. Nowadays, judo ranks among the most popular martial arts in the world with an estimated 20 million fighters affiliated to the International Judo Federation [2, 3]. An injury data from the Olympics of 2008 and 2012 revealed an average injury risk (the number of injured athletes divided by the number of athletes at risk [4]) of 11.2–12.3% [5, 6].
