Stress Relief

JUDO: A powerful method of self-defense

We know how busy life can be - it's easy to forget how important your mental and physical health is, which is why Judo America San Diego is here to help.

Whether you’re interested in physical fitness, self-defense, or even an athletic social outlet, our school maintains a safe and positive environment for you to achieve your goals.

Judo, meaning "the gentle way", is a relatively modern Martial Art that is derived from earlier Japanese fighting styles. Judo places an emphasis on throwing opponents and subduing them via pins and locks, making it an effective self-defense form.

The Judo America San Diego curriculum provides a great way for adults to stay in shape. It won’t become dull or routine because as soon as you get better and continue learning, there are always more challenges ahead to keep you inspired and coming back for more!

Traditional meets modern at Judo America San Diego.

Let us help you reach your fitness goals while experiencing confidence and stress relief.

Teaching Self-Defense Skills

The Judo America San Diego Plan: To Help You Achieve Your Goals.

Judo America San Diego teaches the full curriculum of Judo and Kano Jujitsu including throws, takedowns, extensive Kosen Judo ground fighting and submission training.

The students in our programs experience a number of life-changing physical and mental benefits.

You will find yourself more focused and competitive in both your business life and personal life. You will perform better, feel better, and overall, be better. All you have to do is get started to start seeing the benefits! Stop doing the same mindless exercises at the gym and start working out with a purpose.

Size Doesn't Matter in Judo

Judo remains an effective means of self-defense by relying on throwing and flipping a larger or more powerful adversary to the ground, then applying ground combat techniques to control an opponent once they are in a position of disadvantage.

Judo is meant to be conservative with energy, meaning that it shouldn’t take all of one’s strength to pull off moves to stop an opponent. It’s also meant to transform the student into a person more likely to contribute to society by emphasizing discipline and increasing focus.

In a life-threatening situation, the pinning techniques Judo teaches are also helpful for keeping a mugger or other attacker down without putting yourself in excessive danger. The chokeholds and body locks are capable of restraining an attacker without having to continually try to strike them.

What Other Members Are Saying:

I'm middle age and don't have kids, but I have been very impressed with what I've seen this club do for children; very patient, lots of attention...I'm writing for what this club has done for a middle-ager trying to get back into the sport after a 30 yr absence. The club is essentially staging my return process. I can see the coaches talk among themselves and other judokas to help guide my return. They know the sequence of challenges that I will be facing in conditioning, strength, flexibility, etc. My advice... go for it! and use Judo America to help. This club has your back.

If you're looking for traditional Judo as I was, and that's taught in a vibrant club with fantastic coaches that have broad experience and deep expertise, you've found your club.  Some move to San Diego just to take advantage of the high caliber coaching found here at Judo America.  I highly recommend taking advantage of Coach Jerry and this club if you live in San Diego.  My two boys (7 and 5) and I practice regularly at this club, usually about 3 times a week since Fall of 2014.  We joined after moving to San Diego from Seattle.  My boys and I are beginners. My wife and I think Judo has done wonders for our boys under coach Jerry and team in the short time we've taken up Judo at Judo America.  It's also done wonders for me as a beginning adult just turning 40.

Frequently Asked Questions

Children are required to compete but adults are not. For children, competition is a huge part of a child’s character development, which is why we require children to compete. It’s also a requirement for rank promotion. In general, students who compete advance more quickly than students who don’t compete.

Judo competition is based on weight divisions and skill levels- usually novice, advanced, and master for athletes over 30.

Our Teen & Adults Martial Arts program is for ages 13 & up.
