Judo is one of the most popular grappling style martial arts in the world, due to its dynamic full contact competitive nature and impressive, technical skillset.
The art of Judo covers throwing, tripping and leg grab techniques on our feet, as well as pinning, joint lock and strangulation techniques on the ground. The sport helps to improve not only physical strength but also mental fortitude, balance and body confidence.
In modern Judo there is a focus on the full contact competition aspect of Judo however there is no need to feel pressured to compete. The Exeter Judo society offers a welcoming atmosphere for men and women to come and practice Judo, get fit and socialise and begin their progression towards being a competent Judoka. Once a month we host an open-mat session open to all levels to come down and practice throws, engage in standing or groundwork randori and improve their skills in an open forum.
Whether you enjoy the physicality of competing, the technicality of throwing or the social aspect of the sport, Judo has something for you.
