By combining traditional Kodokan Judo with competition proven set ups, variations, and finishing techniques, this is a Judo program you need to add to your GAME!!
The main principals of Judo include “maximum efficiency with minimum effort” and “mutual welfare and benefit”. In other words, using your opponents strength and momentum against him and learning the techniques and progressing in a safe manner.
Judo can be an effective means of self defense for everyone, no matter the size and strength of your opponent. The benefits of judo can be applied in virtually every aspect of your life.
Judo employs numerous throws, which include hip, hand, foot and sacrifice techniques. It also employs many grappling techniques, consisting of pins, arm bars and strangulation techniques.
Judo improves flexibility, total body coordination, overall balance and reflexes. You will also learn how to fall safely so that you do not injure yourself. These benefits will aid you dramatically if you are ever caught in a physical confrontation or fall accidentally. Judo focuses on skill and leverage, not size and strength. It also promotes concentration, self confidence and leadership.
Judo can be practiced as a competition sport, or as a viable self defense system. Either way, it can be an excellent form of cardiovascular exercise and strength training. If working out and the idea of fitness in general has somewhat lost its luster for you, then maybe it’s time to try a different approach. A martial art like Judo can get you up and moving in a way you’ve never experienced before. When you combine physical activity, self-defense skills, spiritual development and peace of mind together, you’ve got the makings of a great activity that will not only keep you fit but that will also keep you motivated.
