Judo

Program Overview

Judo is a martial art that emphasizes the use of quick movement and leverage to throw an opponent. Its techniques are generally intended to turn an opponent’s force to one’s own advantage rather than to oppose it directly. The opponent must be thrown cleanly, pinned, or mastered through the application of pressure to arm joints or the neck. Judo evolved out of the older martial art.
In addition, our students grow emotionally and learn about judo moral code, courtesy, courage, friendship, honesty, honor, modesty, respect, and self-control. QSports program is progressive and uses belt promotions as a strong motivator. As children get older, their training becomes more serious and intense, but always fun!

 

The Judo Groups are made up of 20 students (maximum) based on ages and skill levels.

We will help them develop basic self-defense skills and techniques as well as instill the basic principles of respect and fitness involved with Judo. The program teaches discipline, confidence, building a positive self- image, and above all, having fun! Studies have shown that children who participate in martial arts as an after-school program improve their study skills and increase mental focus. Our kids program goes far beyond fitness; it lays the foundation for a successful future.
