What is Judo?

Judo is a self defense martial art that teaches its practitioners (judoka) to gain control over an attacker without striking him or her. It is a method of turning an opponent's strength against himself and overcoming by skill rather than sheer strength.

Judo does not involve punching, kicking or striking techniques but rather uses throws, holds, chokes and armlocks.

Through the study of judo, judoka learns respect (for self and others), discipline, responsibility and control. Judo is a safe, fun, a way to reduce stress, while increasing physical fitness, confidence and overall well-being.

Jigoro Kano, the founder of Judo
