What's equally interesting is that this is taking place at Instituto Reação, which is a group of schools founded by Olympic medalist Flávio Canto, where they teach "normal" school courses as well as Judo to the people from the favelas (slums) of Brazil for free. All 1000 members practice judo six days per week, in addition to their other studies. So they are not only producing world class judo players (Rafaela Silva, but helping educate some of the poorest people in Brazil.

F) Sport Science

The Science of Judo:
But a martial art like judo or a team-based sport such as soccer involves "more complex actions," says Emerson Franchini, a physiologist at the University of São Paulo, Brazil. Rather than repetitive motion, these sports require constantly changing muscle groups, as well as adaptation to a partner or team member. Assessing metabolism during these activities is tricky: Judo can't be performed while standing in one place. And throwing people across the lab can make a mess.
So Franchini's team outfitted judo practitioners with a portable physiology lab: a mask attached to a device worn on the torso that analyzes gases in the martial artist's breath and measures the pulse. Once the athletes were hooked up, combat began. In one version of the experiment, they performed three different kinds of throws, one every 15 seconds for 5 minutes (see video). In another, the athletes sparred at high intensity, throwing each other as fast as possible.
