Judo is a sport, an art, a discipline, a social activity, a means of defense, a fitness program, and a way of life. It is a mental and physical education based on combat discipline. Spectators will observe the self-discipline and respect of not only one's self, but of others, during the competition. Judo is a sport that welcomes all ages, genders, weights, and abilities. The benefits are numerous, and it is an activity for developing overall body coordination, improving balance, increasing flexibility, creating confidence, and an excellent activity for overall conditioning.

 

Judo experts and elite athletes, including many who have competed internationally, will be on hand to answer questions and explain the finer points of the sport.
