We offer classes in Judo or our MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) Self-Defense program Jiu-Jitsu Modern Style.
Judo “the way of gentleness” comes to us from the fighting system of feudal Japan. Founded in 1882 by Dr. Jigoro Kano, Judo is a refinement of the ancient martial art of Jujutsu. Judo was introduced into the Olympic Games in 1964 .Judo is best known for it’s spectacular throwing techniques but also involves considerable grappling on the ground utilizing specialized pins, control holds, Judo choking for ages 12+, and arm locks techniques for ages 16+. Judo emphasizes safety, and full physical activity for top conditioning. Judo emphasizes physical and mental development, its influence extends to every area of a person’s life. Physically, Judo Improves flexibility, coordination, balance and reflexes. It is a means of self-defense that requires skill rather than just size or strength. Mentally, it promotes concentration, self-confidence and leadership. Because Judo requires a clear and focused mind, it encourages participants to be fully present in the moment.
