There are many benefits of Judo, beginning with self-defense. Although the creator of Judo intended this martial art to be more of a sport, it has morphed into an effective self-defense technique.

When taking Judo, you will learn a variety of skills involving balance, coordination and effective motion. You will also learn how to fall safely so that you do not injure yourself.
