About Judo

Judo, which is translated as the “gentle way” teaches the principles of flexibility in the application of technique. This is the flexible or efficient use of balance, leverage and movement in the performance of judo throws and other skills.

Skill, technique and timing rather than the use of brute strength are the essential ingredients for success in judo. For example, in judo classes you may learn how to give way rather than use force to overcome a stronger opponent.

The principles of judo such as “maximum efficiency” and “mutual welfare and benefit” can also be used in our dealings with others in life.

The ultimate goal in judo is to develop oneself to the maximum extent possible, always striving for perfection so you can contribute something of value to the world.

Judo was created by Jigoro Kano (1860–1938).
