Why Judo? 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. These benefits will aid you dramatically if you are ever caught in a physical confrontation.
Judo not only works out the body, but it also works out the mind. When taking Judo, you will build self-confidence, trust, self-discipline and respect for yourself and others. There are specific rules and regulations that one must follow in Judo, such as respecting your teacher as well as your opponent.
Many of the locks and holds involve a great deal of trust, which cannot be formed without some level of respect. Judo participants always shake hands before and after matches, which is an honored and special tradition.
