Judo (meaning “gentle way”) was created in 1882 as a martial art that develops physical, mental and moral strength. It is generally categorized as a modern martial art which later evolved into a combat and Olympic sport. Many of our students combine judo and jiu-jitsu training.

It’s most prominent feature is the competitive element, where the objective is to either throw or us a takedown to bring an opponent to the ground. Then once on the ground immobilize the opponent with a pin or force him/her to submit with a joint lock or a choke hold. Hand strikes, kicks and weapon defenses are also a part of judo, but only in pre-arranged forms and not allowed in judo competition or in free practice.

The coaching staff consists of five high-level black belt instructors who dedicate themselves to sharing their knowledge and skills to anyone looking to compete or just have a fun way to stay in shape.
