Judo, or the “gentle way”, is a martial art created by Jigoro Kano in 1882. It’s named the “gentle way” because the essence of Judo is to use your opponent’s energy against him, without having to exert unnecessary amounts of force. Unlike striking arts such as Karate, Judo focuses more on throws and trips, as well as various joint locks and chokes.
Judo is a martial art and Olympic sport that is practiced everywhere in the world, including NYC. We teach Judo for sport, as well as self-defense. We provide Judo NYC instruction for both adults, and youths.
We offer adult classes in all levels; from Beginner/Intermediate to Advance. Brown/black belts from the Advance Class assist and help with the students in the Beginner/Intermediate class. The Advance class consists of students who have obtained a brown/black belt and national/international competitors.
