Jiujitsu

Judo does not strike techniques of any kind. It’s a purely defensive sport, based on other person’s aggressive moves. Judo is two individuals who, by gripping uniforms, use the forces of balances, power, timing, and physics to subdue their opponents and it involves techniques of throwing, grapping & submission holds. It all starts from a standing position and then moves to the ground for submission techniques or to pin your opponent. Promotions are based on competition from green, brown and black belt ranks. Uniforms are mandatory as are four competitions per year. Great cross-training for wrestling.
