Judo Information

ISU Judo at the 2012 Iowa Games

Judo was introduced in 1882 by Jigoro Kano in Tokyo. It is an Olympic sport based on the self-defence techniques of ju-jutsu, including throwing, pinning, armlocks and chokeholds. These techniques have been adapted so that they are safe to use without competitors having to "pull their punches."

The Iowa State University Judo Club (part of the Cyclone Martial Arts Club) trains two or three times a week in 202E Forker. The academic year schedule (starting Thursday, August 24) is Tuesdays and Thursdays at 5pm for beginners, and 6pm for advanced judoka. Beginners are always welcome.
