THE MARTIAL ART THAT IS BOTH GENTLE AND EFFECTIVE?

It’s a 133-year-old combat martial art, and as of 1964, an Olympic Sport as well.

Judo, meaning “the gentle way”, is a martial self defense system of throws, trips, takedowns and pins, all of which aim to immobilize and control an opponent by throwing them off-balance and to the ground.

Judo, like Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ), is the descendant of Japanese Jitsu. Unlike BJJ however, Judo emphasizes grappling from the standing position.

Furthermore, in the absence of kicks and punches, Judo emphasizes shifting balance to create sweeping momentum, as well as intense conditioning.

At our Rockville, Maryland Pure Performance location, we blend these principles with the practical, daily self-defense needs of our members.
