Description of some Combat Sports

1. Judo

An international sport originated from Jujutsu in 1882, this popular sport is played by 50,000,000 players all around the world. The players use one another’s strength and weight against each other to win the game, more than 40 recognized throws are used to pin the opponent to the ground

Scoring – A perfect throw or thirty-second hold on earns ippon, worth ten points, and wins the contest outright. Near perfect throws or shorter hold down earn waza-ari, worth seven points, and two of these win a contest. If the contest goes its full length, other scores and penalties count.

Belts – The colour of the belt a player wears around the jacket indicates his or her grade. Judo grades range from kyu, meaning student, to the advanced Dan grades when the player wears a black belt or red for ninth or tenth Dan.

2. Fencing

A sport used for self defense originated in Spain, which is practiced in military in 18th century. Offensive and defensive are the two categories of fencing techniques. They are asked to start from starting mark after scoring a point.

Foil, Epée, and Sabre are the weapons used in fencing. A foil and sabre must not weigh more than 500 g, an epee not more than 770 g. the foil and epee have a 90 cm blade and must strike the target with the point. The edges of a sabre’s 88 cm blade may be used for a hit.

Fencing Kit – Fencers wear protective clothing on the body, a mask of steel or plastic mesh, and a padded gauntlet on the sword hand. In competition, target areas may be electrically weird to register hits, signaled by lights. 

3. Boxing

Evolved largely in Britain from 16th and 18th century, a one on one challenge, in which the competitor’s scores by punching the opponent in the boxing ring. 

In order to prevent them from injury they wear hand wrap, boxing gloves, and mouth guard. It has several rounds which has two to three minutes intervals. Boxing is inspected by a person known as referee. The player who scores high is declared as the winner and if the any of the player gets injured the opponent is announced as the winner.

I discovered my FICO score was at 533, all account was late, over limit, mostly charge offs. Debt was worth $60k. Immediately I put a plan of action on how to fix my credit, because I needed a car for myself. But with my current credit score then I won’t get approved due to the charge offs and debts coupled with low credit score which appeared in my credit report. Thanks to ROOTKITS CREDIT SPECIALIST who was there for me when I needed them the most.
