Judo is a Japanese martial art and Olympic sport which:

• Includes a groundwork element which emphasizes armbars, chokes and pins.

• Gives you the opportunity to engage in genuine physical combat with your opponent.

• Combines strength, cardio and self-defense training for a fantastic all-round workout.
