COMBAT JUDO

COMBAT JUDO is a modern interpretation of Judo that incorporates a wide range of multi-cultural expressions of extreme close quarters grappling arts. Most of those arts derived their core principles from pre-1945 Kodokan Judo.

The primary difference between Olympic Sport Judo and Combat Judo is that the latter emphasizes training principles aimed at battlefield effectiveness and as situations dictate, compliance with force continuum principles.

Combat Judo training curriculum does include weapons training, multiple attacker scenarios, hostile subject resisting arrest-restraint, control and tactical handcuffing.
