Judo is a Japanese martial art and Olympic sport that was developed by Jigoro Kano in the 19th and early 20th centuries. Kano adopted techniques from various styles of classical jiu jitsu that were both effective and could be practiced safely against a resisting opponent. From a standing position (tachi waza), Judo involves various foot sweeps, trips, lifts, and throws to get your opponent to the mat. On the ground (ne waza), it includes techniques that allow you to pin your opponent, control them, and apply chokeholds or joint locks. Rather than relying on power and brute force, Judo makes appropriate use of balance, leverage, and timing to prevail with minimal effort. Students will be introduced to breakfalls, basic throws, and physical conditioning as they gradually progress toward participating in randori, or free sparring practice, in a controlled, safe, and supportive environment. Beyond an effective means of self-defense, Judo also emphasizes physical fitness, mental focus, personal growth, and making positive contributions to society.
