Join us for Judo on Saturdays from 12-1pm led by Sensei Matt Facemyer (Judo Shodan, Aikido Nidan).
Judo translates to “gentle way”. In this style the student uses the opponent's weight and balance against them rather then forcing them in a direction. It is a sport, martial art and self defense that men and women, boys and girls of any age and size can participate. Judo is considered a grappling sport and utilizes throws or “flips” to bring your opponent to the ground. On the ground Judo participants learn techniques such as holds, joint locks and chokes to subdue the opponent. Unlike other martial arts, judo is not a choreographed set of moves and does not involve kicking or punching. Rather, Judo teaches its participants the use of maximum efficiency with a minimum of effort by using the opponents weight, balance and momentum against themselves. Judo is the most widely practiced martial art in the world and second most practiced sport behind soccer.
