Sportjudo is a nationally known judo club located in North Springfield, Virginia. Our focus is on sport judo–big throws, submission techniques, and pins. We regularly compete in local, regional and national tournaments. A number of our members have won national trophies. A few of our members have competed in international tournaments.
Judo is a formidable (and fun) style of self-defense and sport for students from six to sixty. We welcome newcomers! We’ve got classes for all ages and skill levels. Competition is encouraged, but not required. Nobody is too weak or too out of shape to join. We provide beginners with training in the basics and progress students at a pace comfortable to them. As skill and endurance improve students are phased into advanced drills and live judo grappling. We recognize that different ages and different body types adjust at a different pace and work with each student to maximize their potential and ensure safety.
