Judo (Coming May 2016):
Judo translates to “gentle way”. Meaning, you use the opponents weight and balance against them rather then forcing them in a direction. It is a sport, martial art and self defense that can be played by men and women of any age and size. 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 does not involve kicking or punching. Rather, Judo teaches it’s 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.
