Judo

Judo is a Japanese martial art renowned for its focus on throws and grappling techniques. Unlike many martial arts, Judo emphasizes using an opponent’s force and balance against them, making it suitable for individuals of varying sizes and strengths. In Judo, practitioners learn how to off-balance and control opponents, ultimately aiming to throw them onto the ground or immobilize them with holds and joint locks.
This gentle approach to self-defense promotes physical fitness, mental discipline, and respect for one’s training partners.
