Judo in Elkhorn
Do you want to take martial arts to learn self-defense, control stress, or have a workout that makes you sweat? But what if you aren’t interested in striking and kicking?
Judo is the art for you.
Judo was founded as an educational method derived from the martial arts of the Samurai by Dr. Jigoro Kano. The essence of his system is the "maximum efficient use of energy", a concept he considered both a cornerstone of martial arts and life. He felt the goal of training is "mutual prosperity for self and others." At Elkhorn Flying Dragons we adhere to these principles in our Judo training. Even though Judo is an official Olympic sport and the second most popular sport in the world behind Soccer, don’t let its sporting heritage fool you. It is, at its heart, a martial art. Judo is the art of hitting an opponent with a planet, and the planet never misses.
