Judo is practiced on mats and consists of throws, grappling (which includes pins and chokes for children 13 years and older). Judo is generally compared to wrestling, but it retains its unique combat forms. We teach your child how to fall correctly; which is beneficial in other sports. Judo training emphasizes mental, moral and character development as much as physical training. Our instructors stress the principles of Judo such as yielding to overcome greater strength or size, as well as the scientific principles of leverage, balance, efficiency, momentum and control. The Judo class builds endurance, helps develop good technique and excellent for competitive training. This physically active class combines self- defense strategies and self awareness and helps students develop etiquette, discipline, and builds self- confidence.

One of my favorite places to be. The lessons are priceless, and the people I have met at this Dojo are amazing. My niece (she's 4) loved the judo classes! There are no words to describe what you learn and take with you mentally, physically, and spiritually. It's great.
The only dojo in El Paso that puts on martial arts tournaments. All the other gyms come here to test themselves against us. Lots of fun classes. I especially love getting tossed around in judo. Great way to achieve physical fitness. Train here now.
My family and I highly recommend this Martial Arts Academy to anyone and everyone. 5 STARS all the way! As a parent that wants what's best for her kids, this was it. My two kids love it, look forward to practice everyday, and they enjoy learning martial arts that demonstrates hard work, correct form and technique, self-confidence and respect. Their dojo facility is amazing, huge, and filled with so much history and accomplishments that all can be proud of.
