KIDS JUDO : AGES 5-13

Provide structure for your child by adding Judo into their routine. Judo differs from many other martial arts because children must work with each other. In Judo your child will learn about cooperation and teamwork while making new friends. It also teaches sportsmanship through fun and friendly competition. Judo teaches children discipline by requiring them to always respect their instructors, teammates and training area. This code of conduct inevitably transfers to their home, school and friends. We offer a safe, clean and nurturing environment. The American College of Sports Medicine has noted that Judo is the safest contact sport for children under 13.The children practice in a group setting, but we assist each child with his or her individual needs, providing the guidance necessary for them to grow.

ADULT JUDO CLASSES

JUDO 1 – BEGINNER CLASS
This is a beginner class that covers and reviews the basics of Judo. As a beginner you will have the opportunity to work with an instructor to review drills that you have not learned yet. So although you read “Judo is about throwing your opponent to the ground and forcing them to submit” and you’re thinking “I’ll stick with Zumba”, realize that here at Portland Judo we are all about your personal growth. You will never be forced to participate in any activity that you are not comfortable with. If your goal is to keep learning how to roll on your back for a month, that is perfectly fine…. as long as you’re smiling. Stop in for your free trial class today!
