WHAT IS JUDO?
Judo is an international sport originating from Japan. It is an official Olympic event and differs from other martial arts in that it focuses on throwing techniques from standing position, and submission techniques from the ground.
The reputable Nakano Judo Academy staff offers years of elite level competition and coaching experience in judo.
We have programs for beginners as young as 4 years, and advanced students of any age older than 7. Our programs include weekly classes, clinics throughout the year, and our annual Japan judo tour camp where students have the rare opportunity to train at world class Dojos - with opportunities to shake hands with famous Japanese Judo athletes, such as Kosei Inoue, 2000 Sydney Olympics Gold Medalist.
“Shintaro Nakano brings to SJSU Judo the Japanese version of Judo, which is a little bit different in that they do a lot of execution on a move with speed. He moves fast and he throws all our big guys, so of course they are just amazed that he could do this. But he is showing us what true judo looks like.”
-Yoshihiro Uchida, America’s first Olympic Judo Coach
