Description & Services

What is Judo? 
Judo is many things to different people. It is a sport, an art, a discipline, a recreational or social activity, a fitness program, a means of self-defence or combat, and "a way of life". It is all these and more. 
Judo, which is translated as the "gentle way", teaches the principle of flexibility in the application of technique. This is the flexible or efficient use of balance, leverage, and movement in the performance of Judo throws and other skills. Skill, technique and timing, rather than the use of brute strength, are the essential ingredients for success in Judo. For example, in Judo classes you may learn how to give way, rather than use force, to overcome a stronger opponent. 
Judo was founded in 1882 by Professor Jigoro Kano, who modified the more dangerous techniques of ju-jitsu and developed Judo from a martial art to a sport. He also gave Judo a physical education emphasis and a strong moral orientation.
