Work up a sweat in a vibrant neighborhood dojo with New Zealand's former national judo coach. Ju (柔)translates to ‘gentle’ and do (道)means ‘the way’. While it may be hard to imagine why Judo, a martial art would be described as gentle, the key to understanding this is in how Judo focuses on one’s ability (“gentleness/flexibility”) to adapt to different situations and opportunities throughout combat. Get up close and personal with ‘the gentle way’ at a traditional dojo in Osaka.
