Judo for Kids and Teens in Vancouver

Judo for Kids & Teens

NOTE: Currently due to COVID-19 restrictions we offer only a modified no-contact Strength & Agility program. For more details and registration please visit this page.

Judo, often referred to as the Gentle Way. It is an athletic evolution of Japanese Jujutsu, developed by Jigoro Kano in 1882, as a physical, mental and moral pedagogy. In 1964, it became the first Japanese Martial Art to be recognized as an official Olympic sport. Since then, Judo’s popularity has grown to such a degree that it has been reported to be the world's second most popular sport after Soccer. It is, however, much more than just a sport. As a Martial Art, Judo encourages personal development and emphasizes the importance of respect, discipline, and humility.
