Judo is a martial art that consists of throws, sweeps, holds, joint locks and chokes used for Randori (free play) and self-defense. It involves training the mind and body as well as general fitness.
No, we have students of all ages and recognize that competitions are not for all students. Our goal is that you have fun, develop fitness and self-defense while learning the martial art of Judo.
One of the key features of Judo and similar martial arts is throwing. We teach you how to properly fall to protect yourself while training and in a realistic situation.
Judo is not based on strength, but on breaking the opponent's balance. Once their balance is broken it becomes much easier to throw them. The creator of Judo, Jigoro Kano, was a small statured man and wanted to create a martial art that was highly efficient, both physically and mentally.
All students are encouraged to attend these functions even if it is only to observe and support your fellow students. Although by participating you have an opportunity to test your skills and learn new ways to apply and/or improve your skills and techniques.
Testing of a students' skills and knowledge are based on several factors; there is a minimum time requirement between each promotion, class participation is important, each student progresses differently and your Sensei will know when you are ready.
