Judo is a dynamic and exciting contact sport for men and women of all ages.
Judo was developed by Dr. Jigoro Kano in 1882. After studying under several Ju jitsu masters, Kano set out to organize a systematic and safe system for teaching his own style of Ju jitsu. He called it Kodokan Judo.
The main difference between Judo and other forms of Ju jitsu was the way they were practiced. Ju jitsu practitioners often avoided the full application of techniques due to their potential for permanent injury or death. Kano developed a methodogy for teaching safe falling. In addition, he instituted randori, a dynamic session which allowed for the safe practice of actual techniques. Judo was the first martial art to use a ranking system with belt colors.
Judo is best known for its dynamic high-altitude throws but also includes a complete grappling system that incorporates turnovers, pins and submission techniques. Because Judo emphasizes safety, age guildines restrict the use of chokes and arm bars by younger students.
Judo combines the excitement of sport with an effective form of self defense for men and women.
Judo teaches flexibility in both body and attitude which translate into success in life.
For those who wish to test their skills, Judo offers the opportunity for competition at all ages and skill levels.
Judo provides an emphasis on discipline, respect and self-control and has a proud and rich set of traditions.
The underlying theme of Judo is mutual welfare and respect.
