Judo! A great sport and martial art!

Judo is a fantastic way to get or stay in shape, defend yourself, develop self-esteem and confidence, meet great people and learn a little Japanese language and culture! I have studied Judo for  13 years as well as Setoryu Karate, holding a Shodan in both disciplines.  A high light of my competitive Judo career was earning the Bronze medal in the 2006 State and National USJA tournament. I am a USJA/USJF member of Kodokan Judo and am an Instructor at City of Industry Judo. http://www.facebook.com/pages/Industry-Sheriffs-Judo-Club-YAL/107293995958738

Kano Sensei age 28.

Judo founded in the late 1800’s by  Jigiro Kano, a former Jui jitsu practitioner, is the most effective means of self defense. The Japanese police held a competition to choose Judo or Jujitsu ( in the 1900s) for the method of defense and apprehension. Judo players defeated Jujitsu practitioners by an overwellming percentage. The main difference in the discipline is the philosophical break in training of one’s character as well as the body and technique. “Judo is the way to the most effective use of both physical and spiritual strength. By training you in attacks and defenses it refines your body and your soul and helps you make the spiritual essence of Judo a part of your very being. In this way you are able to perfect yourself and contribute something of value to the world. This is the final goal of Judo discipline.”-
