About Judo

From its humble and obscure beginnings in 1882 from Japan, judo has become an Olympic sport, a recognized system of physical and mental education, and according to the International judo Federation (IJF), it is now one of the, if not the most widely practiced indoor sport in the World.

By experiencing the trials and tribulations within the safe sporting environment of judo, the individual undergoes positive physical and mental changes. From the struggles encountered during judo practice, the individual is challenged with simultaneously executing, and receiving the dynamic judo skills of throwing, falling, holding, choking and arm locking. The physical effort and mental absorption required in applying these skills lead the practitioner through a gamut of emotions, ranging from: disappointment, confusion, and frustration, to those of satisfaction, joy, euphoria and accomplishment. Which, to name a few, leads to increased self esteem, improved discipline in daily life, sportsmanship, and an overall feeling of well being.
