WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT
Judo was created in the late nineteenth century by Jigoro Kano as a more peaceful version of the jiu jitsu used by samurai and other warriors in pre-restoration Japan. Removing its more dangerous elements, Kano also emphasized the philosophical elements of the martial art. As such, Judo is a sport that focuses to this day on self-improvement and the betterment of society.
As a fighting technique, Judo emphasizes throwing or taking down an opponent by using their own attack against them. Free practice, known as randori, is also a significant element in Judo, as opposed to the strict kata forms found in many other Japanese martial arts. Striking and grappling also are common moves used.
Over a century after its inception, Judo has spread all over the world, and its successful methods have been used as a model for other martial arts. It was the first martial art to appear in the Olympics in 1964 and will appear again in the Tokyo Olympics in 2021.
This program focuses on the fundamental movements used in modern Judo. Taught by trained experts*, you will learn how to throw your opponent using the basic movements instructed in Judo. As part of the activity, you will also learn the history of Judo, including its physical, mental and moral pedagogy, and its influence of current Japanese physical education.
*Our Judo program is taught by a range of instructors all with years of training in the martial art. Many have competed nationally and internationally and their accomplishments include: several All Japan Junior Judo Championship winners and runner-ups, an All Japan Student Judo Championship winner, and All Japan World Masters Championship runner-up.
