Facts and Questions

What is Judo: Judo is derived from Jujutsu and was born on October 28, 1860 by Professor Jigoro Kano.  The word Judo means gentle or yielding way. Most moves can be done with full force to create a decisive victory without injury. It is best known for its throwing techniques but also involves considerable grappling on the ground. Judo was introduce to the Olympic Games in 1964. Judo has strict set of rules that govern competition and ensures safety. Judo is a inexpensive, year-round activity that appeals to of all walks of life and ages.


 

What are the Judo Belt Colors: Judo created the system of ranks, now used in most other martial arts, that recognizes a person's degree of skill, ability, and leadership. Ranks for juniors (under 17) and adults are separate. Ranks are identified by colored belts and 10 degrees of advancement for black belts. Students show greater progress if they have a visible system of many color belts recognizing achievement and providing regular incentives.

Colors: WHITE, YELLOW, ORANGE, GREEN, BLUE, AND PURPLE before the traditional BROWN, and BLACK


 

How much time does it take to achieve each belt color:  There is no set time student achievement in Judo. Students are promoted forward to the next color when the required knowledge, ability, and skills are demonstrated. Each student gains knowledge and skill at their own pace. We do not push our students to perform at levels above their own ability, promote them when they are not ready, or push them through the program to simply collect belts. Judo is a year around sport and not seasonal. We grant your children the hard earned pride in achieving the next color belt.
