“The judo club knows how to throw a party”

People get thrown in judo, and this has led to some “throw a party” jokes. “The GB Judo team are staying at the same hotel. They know how to ‘throw’ a party...hello...is thing on?...hello...1,2...” was posted on Twitter on July 26, 2012. “I bet our judo guys know how to ‘throw’ a party… #joker #icrackmyselfup” was posted on Twitter on August 2, 2012.

“The judo club knows how to throw a party” was posted on Twitter by Gary Miller‏ on June 30, 2017, and again on Twitter on February 22, 2018.


Wikipedia: Judo
Judo (柔道 jūdō, meaning “gentle way") was created as a physical, mental and moral pedagogy in Japan, in 1882, by Jigoro Kano (嘉納治五郎). It is generally categorized as a modern martial art which later evolved into a combat and Olympic sport. Its most prominent feature is its competitive element, where the objective is to either throw or takedown an opponent to the ground, immobilize or otherwise subdue an opponent with a pin, or force an opponent to submit with a joint lock or a choke. Strikes and thrusts by hands and feet as well as weapons defenses are a part of judo, but only in pre-arranged forms (kata, 形) and are not allowed in judo competition or free practice (randori, 乱取り). A judo practitioner is called a judoka.
