No, you learn “A proper way to defend yourself.”
Throwing is not the first thing you learn in judo. Learning how to properly fall is the first thing you learn as it is essential to prevent injuries from being thrown. Also, knowing how to fall correctly is a skill that can prevent many unnecessary injuries in other aspects of life such as running, biking, skiing, rollerblading, ice skating, and etc. UWGMA Training Center is the only dojo in the area with permanent padded mats on top of a spring-loaded support platform system that minimizes the impact of falls, like gymnastic mats.
No. Judo is a defensive martial art which focuses on grappling and control. In many cases, the smaller person has the advantage. There are Kata (forms) that include striking, but it is only practiced by higher-ranking Judokas.
Judo is practiced in a Judo Gi. For the first month or so it is not required but highly recommended. If you are trying out, you are welcome to borrow a gi from our collection. A judo gi will become necessary to practice and learn judo techniques. Jiu-Jitsu gis are allowed in practice if you already have one, an actual judo gi is mandatory for competition. Karate gis do not perform well in Judo class and often rip.
Judo is not for impatient people. It could take 6 years or more and it depends on how much you are committed and dedicated to learning it. Regular competition participation helps lessen the years to black belt especially if you're on top of your games and standing on the medal podium most of the time. Students under 16 years old are rarely promoted to black belt unless they are exceptional Judo practitioners and competitors. Earning a black belt in judo means you can handle and defend yourself from much bigger and stronger attackers in real life if necessary.
Our Martial Arts classes' primary goal is to make sure our students have fun in a enjoyable, safe environment. Come and see a class for yourself - we all have a blast and our instructors do too.
