Quick Guide to Judo

The Videos throughout the website show world class competitors in action. This level of Judo is not where beginning students will start at Kuma. And, it could very well take many years to reach this level. Your instructor will help you progress at your own pace to develop Judo skills. Not everyone wants to be a competitor. Therefore, there are two paths to black belt: a non-competitor and competitor. Youth class is an exciting, fun oriented activity with the goal of instilling Judo principles, skills and confidence.
