Judo, which originated in Japan, is an Olympic and combat sport in which the object is to throw/take an opponent to the ground, and either pin the opponent by immobilizing him/her or submit the opponent with an armlock or a choke. Our judo classes are taught by Jim Harrison—a 3rd degree Black Belt in Judo and a 3-time Kentucky state champion with 25 years of experience in the sport—and John Wortley—a 5th degree black belt in Kodokan Judo, 4th degree black belt in traditional jiujitsu, 14-time Kentucky State Judo Champion, AAU National Champion, and two-time USA Judo Masters Medalist.

At Core, Judo is a FREE add-on to our Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu program. In our Judo classes, you will learn how to control another person’s energy with throws, sweeps, positions, pins, and submissions.
