    No one ever told me. Why do some people spell Judo as Yudo?

    Koreans aren't big on the Japanese, given the hundreds of years of cultural and literal rape they've experienced from them. If it's a japanese art practised in korea, expect its name to be changed, if they don't claim it's an entirely different art all together. The name is based on some difference between the japanese and korean language I don't understand. For example, kendo is called kumdo in korea

    ^^^ correct. There a a handfull of guys on this site that are amazingly knowledgable about this kind of stuff but it's just judo, in Korea, where the call it Yudo. That's really all there is to it. Move on.

    Unless it's not in Korea, then it's probably bullshido.
