Judo Overview

Enlisted Nine Fight Company’s Judo classes are challenging, yet extremely welcoming and fulfilling. We feel that Judo is the perfect martial art for athletes looking to drastically expand their physical abilities and gain greater experience in self-defense. Still not seeing the advantages? Just take a look at Enlisted Nine Fight Company’s very own Judo fighters. Our martial artists who practice Judo are known for their quick thinking and high levels of strength, coordination, and agility. Not only is Judo an amazing martial art to practice, but the skills you’ll acquire from it are guaranteed to take your athletic game in all other martial art disciplines to the next level.

Focuses on Defense

Wrestling and Judo are unique martial art disciplines. While many other forms of martial arts focus on striking, attacking, and overcoming an opponent using intense kicks and punches, they emphasize defense. For example, in a match, martial artists aim to exhaust their opponents through grappling. This martial art teaches moves and maneuvers that allow a smaller fighter to succeed against a larger and often stronger opponent. This distinctive element of Judo makes it ideal for self-defense, particularly among children and smaller individuals.

While people are impressed by the fancy kicks and punches of martial art disciplines such as Karate and Taekwondo, they often underestimate the impact of Wrestling and Judo’s grappling, throws, and blocks. Wrestling and Judo are extremely strategic, preparing their practitioners well for fights that end up on the ground – a reality in many real-life altercations.


Promotes Important Values

Judo is not just about overcoming an opponent or winning a medal. It has its very own moral code. This set of guidelines outlines how all Judo martial artists should live and behave – not just as athletes, but as people. The Team USA website states that this code includes values surrounding courtesy, courage, friendship, honesty, honor, modesty, respect, and self-control.

At Enlisted Nine Fight Company, we believe that mastery in body and mind must happen simultaneously. We teach our students that to be successful, they must apply the Judo moral code to every single class, grappling session, and match. When martial artists are in tune with their emotions, can control their actions, and hold strong standards for themselves, their athletic performance will reach new heights. We push our students to take care of those around them, act with integrity, persevere through challenges, and learn from their mistakes. Thanks to these values, Enlisted Nine Fight Company is home to an amazing martial art community, where all students are sure to thrive.
