What Is Judo?

Judo is many things to different people.  It is a sport, an art, a discipline, a recreational or social activity, a keep fit program, a means of self defense, and a way of life.  It is to some extent all of these, but to most participants, it truly is a sport. My favorite way to describe Judo is "controlling your opponent without injury."

Judo Training:

Judo training can develop a competitive spirit and a feeling of confidence in a
variety of situations.  Judo develops self discipline and respect for one's self and others.  Regular Judo training can improve an individual's aerobic capacity, speed, power, strength, agility, and flexibility.  Judo is unique in that all age groups and both sexes can participate together in learning and playing the sport.
