Learn the Martial Art of Judo

The Japanese Martial Art Grappling system, Judo, was created in Japan in 1882 by Jigoro Kano.  The objective is to take down an opponent with either a throw or takedown, get him to the ground and immobilize, subdue, or submit an opponent with a joint lock or choke.


Here at Excel Jiu Jitsu MMA & Fitness Oceanside, we incorporate the lessons in Judo, the sister Art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ), to better fit the sport of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA).  MMA fighters will use No-Gi Judo from the clinch position, to take down an opponent  to the canvas to gain advantage.
