Due to the use of safety matting and the focus of Judo on teaching students correct falling and other safety techniques, Judo players are able to be thrown and get up completely unharmed even from the more dynamic and sometimes spectacular throwing or submission hold techniques.

Effective and Safe Self Defence

All Judo techniques can be applied fully in a controlled manner without the risk of permanent or serious injury to an opponent or attacker when performed correctly by trained Judoka. In the modern self-defence situation this is vitally important because people need to be able to defend themselves effectively but obviously do not wish to face prosecution or imprisonment if their defence of themselves causes serious harm to their attacker.
