ultimate judo

Ultimate Judo are Aberdeen's multi-award winning Judo club. Our classes teach the traditional martial art of Judo in a fun, safe and progressive manner. Judo was invented to be a form of physical, mental and moral education by Professor Jigoro Kano in 1882 and has grown in popularity becoming the second most participated sport in the world and plays an important role in Physical Education within schools in Japan, Germany and France to name a few. Through Judo we learn not only the self defence and self protection techniques, but by training in Randori (sparring) it teaches a fighting spirit of never giving up. Only by stepping out of our comfort zones , can we really develop as a person and see our inner strengths. Through Judo we make friends across the world with the common interest of Judo. Judo is more than a sport.

Not to mention the concepts of self-defence which they acquire and which they can use when needed throughout their lives.
