Judo

Judo was founded by Dr. Jigro Kano and is an evolution and refinement of the weapons-free elements of Jujitsu. Judo was created to provide a safer and still effective art and is known for the variety, effectiveness and impressive looks of its throws. A high-quality, padded surface is required for the learning of judo techniques because of all the throws and falls.

Judo consists primarily of throwing (Nage), grappling (Katame) and striking (Atemi). Judo uses the popular martial art belt ranking system, with 6 colored belts and 10 black belt levels called dan. Judo practitioners wear judo gis, which are heavier than Karate or Taekwondo uniforms and are designed to stand up to the stress of holds, throws and grappling techniques.
