Judo is a fun sport, a physical and mental discipline, a martial art form, a recreational activity, a means of self-defense and a fitness program.
It is all of these and much more. Judo is not only a wonderful sport for boys and girls to develop self-confidence; it is an activity where the skills learned are transferable to many other sports. Some of the benefits to be gained through judo training include improved physical fitness, flexibility, power, coordination and conditioning. Athletes who participate in judo develop a sharp mind and a well-coordinated body. Discipline, patience, respect, honor, leadership and self-confidence are other qualities to be gained through the sport of judo.
The goal of The CYC Judo Program is to teach this sport to boys and girls, so they can enjoy it as a recreational sport. CYC coaching staff believes judo training helps prepare students to be more confident, patient, self-sufficient and content young people. It is our sincere hope and aspiration for young people at CYC to dream big and work diligently every day to achieve their goals in life!
