    Judo is an ancient style that when tied into a strong Brazilian Jiu Jitsu ground game can make a formidable opponent. Adding Judo to your gi grappling skillset can not only help you master takedowns, grips and throws but also prevent your opponent unleashing them on you.

    No not at all. In fact we encourage any one at any age to start Judo!

    Judo provides a great base for mixed martial arts. The person who controls the throwing space also controls the following ground exchange. Understanding this will help MMA fighters have more control between being on their feet and the ground 

    Gradings will be done more frequently for kids/youth. The greater the commitment to an adults judo practice, the higher the chances are of being reviewed 

    We will have a spare trail GI for you to borrow for your first class. But just incase turn up in comfortable clothes such as sports tights/ or shorts and a fitted t-shirt

    Like any sport it is unrealistic to say you will never get injured. But here at Grappling Education we teach the safest way possible as well as teaching our students proper falling techniques

    Our Testimonials

    Learn Judo: “The Gentle Way”

    Judo is a Japanese martial art that was developed from the fighting techniques of the Samurai known as jujutsu. Now it is an integral part of modern mixed martial arts, and judo is an Olympic sport in its own right. The word judo translates literally into “the gentle way,” and judo training focuses on redirecting your opponent’s momentum to achieve throws and submissions without relying on brute strength. This makes judo highly successful for self-defense as it allows a smaller, weaker individual to defend themselves against a much larger and stronger attacker.

    Whatever your reasons for learning this art may be, locating judo coaching of the highest caliber must be your priority. You may be tempted to open your search engine of choice, simply type in “judo near me” and pick the closest gym. While that may seem to be the fastest method, you are only doing yourself a disservice. In judo an emphasis is placed on live training called randori, and proper supervision and education are needed to prevent injury and train safely. Let our staff provide the safe environment so that you can focus on mastering your skills.

    Judo Training

    A judo match is broken down into two components, tachi-waza and ne-waza. Tachi-waza is where all matches begin, and it involves attempting to throw your opponent to the mat on their back with significant force while maintaining control. A technique that does this results in ippon and an immediate victory. Ne-waza involves ground-based grappling similar to Brazilian jiu jitsu where combatants attempt to win via submission. Ippon is also scored in ne-waza should one judoka pin the other on their back in excess of 20 seconds, or if either party taps out due to a submission hold.

    Waza-ari is a partial point, and it is awarded to a judoka who accomplishes a throw of significant force but fails to maintain control, a throw in which their opponent fails to land on their back, or a pin lasting longer than 10 seconds but less than 20. Multiple waza-ari may be awarded. Shido, a penalty point, is assessed for prolonged non-aggression or prohibited techniques. Collecting three shidos results in disqualification from the match.
