Photographer's Note

This photo was taken in Kusadasi Turkey during an International Judo Competition.

Kusadasi is one of Turkey's principle holiday resorts, offers an excellent environment for an unforgettable holiday. Situated on the west coast of Turkey, Kusadasi, is reputed for one of the most attractive city of the Aegean, as it is close to the important historical sites including Ephesus, Didyma, Priene, Miletos-the principals of ancient times, and ideal for sightseers.

Judo, meaning "The Way of Gentles" is a Japanese martial art, which was founded by Prof. Jigaro Kano in 1882. It is the first martial art which is included in the Olympic Games (1964). The technique shown here is called as Uchi-Mata meaning "Inner Thigh Throw" is a very affective technique in competitions and visually attractive. Judo is a very fast sport and just after a second, this throw was resulted in an "Ippon" meaning full point, which ends the game immediately.
