If you or your teenager is interested in learning the classic art of Judo, Revolution MMA has ongoing classes for beginners all across the Toronto area. We schedule lessons and classes around school and extra-curricular activities, giving teens access to programs that they may not otherwise have.
Judo was the very first form of martial arts ever practiced in the Olympic Games. The overall goal is to take down or throw the opponent with an arm lock or choke hold. It started with Jiu Jitsu, which was originally taught to the Gracie family in Brazil. Later, the Gracie family became the founders of the UFC in the United States, which hosts the largest competitive martial arts competition on the world. Today, we teach our teen students to use balance, timing, and leverage to defeat stronger or larger opponents, which are vital skills when it comes to self-defense.
If you're a concerned parent or caregiver, keep in mind that our coaches and trainers are professionals who ensure that every precaution against injury is taken. Judo not only teaches self-defense in one of its finest forms, but it also improves health and fitness with strength training, cardio, and more. Judo is the perfect medium for burning off energy and relieving the frustration associated with everyday stress, and it teaches teens how to discipline themselves – a skillset that they can carry with them for a lifetime.
Judo is one of the oldest and most well-loved forms of martial arts, and it plays a vital role in MMA, as well. Teens can certainly benefit from classes at Revolution MMA for a variety of reasons. It's not all about fighting; it's about learning important life skills and using them in a variety of situations.
