What is Judo?
Known and practiced world-wide, judo is both a martial art and a sport that uses throws, holds, chokes, and armlocks to overcome opponents. Learning and practicing judo provides all levels of exercise, cardiovascular conditioning, physical coordination, balance, self-defense, and even a competition pathway all the way to international and Olympic levels. Judo is a dynamic style that does not rely on strength but is based on a combination of balance, coordination and reaction – all skills that help performance across other sports.
