Achieve Great health and better fitness with judo!
Judo's "road of gentleness" comes from feudal Japan's combat system; created in 1882 by Dr. Jigoro Kano, Judo is the refinement of ancient martial art Jujutsu. Judo was introduced in the 1964 Olympic Games. Judo is best known for its impressive throwing techniques and includes extensive ground wrestling using advanced sticks, power grips, 12 + Judo shock, and 16 + arm locks. Judo stresses safety and full training for top conditioning. Judo emphasizes physical and mental growth, spreading its power to any aspect of a person's life. Physically, Judo strengthens endurance, agility, balance, and reflexes. It's a self-defense means involving skill rather than size or weight. It encourages concentration, self-confidence, and leadership. Since Judo requires a calm, concentrated mind, it allows participants to be present at the moment.
