Kodokan Judo

Classes run Tuesday's & Thursday's 6:00 PM - 9:30 PM
One of the principles of judo is that a stronger opponent can be defeated by turning his strength against himself. Professor Kano explains how in yielding there is strength: “Suppose we estimate the strength of a man in units of one. Let us say that the strength of this man is 10 units, whereas my strength, less than his, is 7 units. Then if he pushes me with all his force, I shall certainly be pushed back or thrown down, even if I use all my strength against him. This would happen from opposing strength to strength. But if instead of opposing him, I leave him unresisted, withdrawing my body just as much as he pushes, at the same time keeping my balance, he will naturally lean forward and lose his balance. In this new position, he may become weak (not in actual physical strength, but because of his awkward position) as to reduce his strength for the moment, say to 3 units only instead of 10 units. But meanwhile I, by keeping my balance, retain my full strength, as originally represented by 7 units. Here then, I am momentarily in a superior position, and I can defeat my opponent by using only half of my strength, or 3 1/2 units against his 3 units. This leaves one-half of my strength available for any other purpose. If I had greater strength than my opponent, I could, of course, push him back. But even if I wished to and had the power to do so, it would still be better for me first to give way, because by so doing, I should have greatly saved my energy and exhausted my opponent’s.”

The Beginner level Kodokan Judo class runs on Tuesday’s & Thursday’s between 6:00 PM – 7:00 PM.

Judokaa’s Junior Judo Class is a slower paced class with lots of breakfalls, rolls, and some Judo action. This will give your child a chance to practice both their stand up and ground work skills. Many of the classes combine a Judo and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu style and many of the children in this class will move on to fight in tournaments in both styles.

Children in this program are not required to compete! Children in this class move slowly through the rank and learn many of the techniques in the early stages of the program.

The Advanced level Kodokan Judo class runs on Tuesday’s & Thursday’s between 7:00 PM – 8:00 PM.

Judokaa’s Advanced Junior Competitive Class is an advanced technical aspect of both Judo and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu skills, with students practicing and learning more advanced techniques. The pace of this class is much faster with the emphasis on advanced technical skills and lots of fighting. Many of the classes combine a Judo and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu style, and all the children in this class fight in tournaments in both styles.

Children in this program are pushed to compete at both regional as well as provincial levels, and we have at this time many that are competing, and winning at these levels.

The Adult level Kodokan Judo class runs on Tuesday’s & Thursday’s between 8:00 PM – 9:30 PM.

Judokaa’s Adult Judo & Jiu-Jitsu Class usually has between 5-8 brown belts and black belts on the mats at any given time, and you’re always guaranteed lots of one on one time with a higher belt. Many of our black belts have coached and competed at the national level and would love to share their Judo and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu skills.

The adult program also has many recreational Judokaa’s that train in martial arts to stay fit.
