TEENAGERS & ADULTS CLASSES
Judo is a very effective Martial Art as well as a Combat Olympic Sport. The Martial Art side of Judo actually includes striking techniques and effective self defence systems, or can also be safely practiced as a "Combat Sport" which includes throwing and grappling techniques to suit all shapes and sizes, where participants can go 100% without having to hold back, safe in the knowledge that techniques applied correctly will neither injure their opponent or themselves. This makes a Judo Practitioner specialised at close contact fighting, which is what is generally needed for effective self-defence. Rakuen Martial Arts will develop each ‘Judoka’ Judo Student with correct form in the essential elements of Judo and incorporate continual variation in drills and technique development.
The benefits of doing Judo at Rakuen Martial Arts are numerous, and include development in the areas of emotional control, heightened awareness of surroundings, flexibility, building physical and emotional strength, discipline, mutual respect for others, courage and modesty. As well as the social side of meeting new people, it also develops confidence, coordination, balance, falling skills, efficiency of movement, and self-defence skills.
Judo is great for improving physical fitness, flexibility and strength and is also an excellent complement to many other sports. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu - BJJ is actually an off shoot of Judo ripped off by the Gracie Family, and although it has seen a lot of publicity in recent years from Mixed Martial Arts - MMA it unfortunately does not provide the full package of Judo offered at Rakuen Martial Arts.
