judo ages 7+
Judo is the Japanese art of throwing, ground control, and submission. Judo translates to "the gentle way". It is characterized by using your opponents energy against them rather than using strength alone. An experienced Judoka understands how to neutralize an opponent while minimizing any damage to them, in the spirit of "the gentle way."
Our program is designed to fit the need of every individual - from casual practitioner to experienced competitor. We focus on building character, proper technique, strength and explosiveness. We believe in developing total health: mind body and spirit.
Beginners start by building a strong foundation of: falling, throwing, and ground control techniques. Intermediate/advanced students learn advanced techniques + combos, gripping strategies, submissions, and situational drilling to develop beautiful fluid Judo that focuses first on finesse rather than strength alone.
