Judo

Judo

Judo, also known as 'the gentle way' is really a full contact art and the forefather of many modern submission fighting disciplines.

Now an Olympic sport, with the emphasis on throws, trips, sweeps and pins, it's history actually includes strikes locks, chokes and joint manipulation techniques.

All current forms of Jiu Jitsu, both Japanese and Brazilian stem from judo roots, as does the Russian Sambo wrestling style. It also has a massive influence on other self defence and combat systems used around the world as well as in mixed martial arts.

Founded by the great Jigoro Kano in the late 1800s, he rewrote the outdated teachings of jujutsu to be more suitable with a more modern society. His pioneering work also led to the style being embraced as an Olympic sport in 1882.

Modern judo as both a stand alone sport and an essential part of mixed martial arts, is practiced world wide. With two separate paths to grade a judoka's achievements, formal grading or fighting, Southend Combat Academy boasts coaches from both paths, offering the highest level of judo coaching in Southend and Essex.
