Our Philosophy

Our mission is to impart to our students not only the physical skills of Judo, but its philosophy and traditions. Judo, or "The Gentle Way" is a martial art developed by Dr. Jigoro Kano which makes use of the principles of leverage, balance, movement and making use of the opponent's strength. It uses the opponent's power and weight to work against him and thereby to subdue him.

Dr. Kano Says:

A good Judoka never anticipates his action in a match, but his mind is as clever as a polished mirror which enables him to foresee precisely anything to happen and he displays freedom of his physique to cope with any change.

- Jigoro Kano, Canon of Judo
