 Learn more about our program philosophy below.

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. In Judo, you will learn how to control another person’s energy with throws, sweeps, positions, pins, and submissions.

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.
