Judo is the only martial art that is specifically a sport. It involves using one's opponents moves to apply techniques, as well as initiating one's own techniques. To be a good judoka (judo player) one must acquire techniques and get into good physical shape. This course will emphasize physical conditioning, building of cardiorespiratory endurance, and the techniques involved in judo. The class will include flexibility, exercises, and some practical applications of judo as self-defense, but will mainly stress the sporting or competitive aspect of judo. There is a fee of $15 for equipment rental.
