Marius’s tactical Judo approach is well versed in sport, as well as self defense and mma settings. If you do not not know about Judo, let me explain it to you, and how it will be beneficial to every member of the team. Judo is a martial art starting from the feet that uses balance, power and movement to throw an opponent onto his/her back. Once on the ground Judo practitioners use control or submissions to subdue their opponent. Like jiu jitsu and other martial arts, Judo requires a high amount of mental toughness to become skilled. Although if you first walk into a judo class, you might be surprised to know that Judo is about gentleness. The word judo consists of two Japanese characters, ju, which means “gentle”, and do, which means “the way”.
So how will having a solid, well taught and exciting Judo class at Hart Martial Arts in Conshohocken, help? In many ways. The first and most obvious is that having a solid series of takedowns is key to success jiu jitsu. Jiu Jitsu competitions start with competitors on their feet, and knowing some judo throws is a big advantage. Second, Judo practice is incredibly rigorous and physically demanding. According to World Judo Today, practicing Judo will increase explosiveness, agility, flexibility, dynamic and static balance, endurance, and overall strength. Next, Judo, teaches how to control an opponent on the ground. Having the knowledge of how to pin and quickly submit an opponent in valuable in jiu jitsu as well as in self defense. Finally, Judo offers us the chance to learn a new martial art and expand our knowledge as overall martial artists. This is important for keeping the eager, knowledge-loving, white belt mentality. Because when it comes to Judo, we are all beginners. I hope to see everyone on the mats tomorrow to welcome Coach Marius to Hart Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Boxing and Mixed Martial Arts.
