    What we're about

    Meetup to practice the martial art of Judo. This is NOT an open session for randori or grappling - there are other venues for that. This meetup will provide an enviroment where adults (18 and up) can learn and practice Kodokan Judo based on the principles of mutual welfare and benefit (helping each other improve), and best use of energy without the “overwhelming emphasis” on sport. You must be able to fall properly (or learn how). Keep in mind this is a martial art, and injuries may occur. We treat each other with respect to minimize the potential for injury, and to maximize our learning. Those who cannot adhere to this need not attend - respect is mandatory for the safety of all! This meetup is hosted by the New College of Florida Judo Club and USA Traditional Kodokan Judo ( ). You must sign a waiver to attend (available at the meetup).
