Get on a mat to get fit and lose weight.
Judo combines throwing techniques, grappling on the ground, pins, control holds, arm locks, and choking techniques. In spite of the intense sound of these elements, judo actually uses flexibility and agility to achieve maximum results. Judokas learn how and when to yield instead of using brute force to achieve success.
Judo develops overall physical conditioning with great flexibility and muscle tone. Note that judo is not dependent upon your physical condition at the outset. If you are out of shape or overweight, judo is a great way to develop a leaner, stronger body while using a weight loss program. Because of the nature of judo and its practice, it is ideal for young or old, slim or overweight.
Regular judo practise will make you fitter and burn calories. Combined with a good diet, it will increase your capacity for weight loss.
