Judo, which means “The Gentle Way”, is a Japanese martial art based upon the ancient techniques of jujutsu. Dr. Jigoro Kano, President of the University of Education in Tokyo, developed judo in 1882. Dr. Kano, who had studied jujutsu in his youth, incorporated the best of these ancient techniques into the new art of Judo. Dr. Kano subsequently founded the Kodokan in Tokyo, Japan as an place to teach his new art.

Judo is a lot of fun as you learn the techniques, grade up a belt, & make new friends at your club. It is a sport suitable for both boys & girls, of all ages, abilities, shapes & sizes.
