A part of the Berkeley and Albany community for over 50 years, Hanabi Judo offers classes for children, women and men of all ages. www.hanabijudo.com
Judo, meaning “The Gentle Way,” is a very effective means of self-defense while being a safe, non-violent way of controlling an opponent. Judo emphasizes throwing techniques and ground-work but also features chokes and arm-locks. Judo is an Olympic event and the world’s second most popular sport (behind soccer). Hanabi means "Fireworks" in Japanese and its energy, brightness and excitement truly express the spirit of our judo. For almost half a century we have been a part of the Albany and Berkeley community developing not just champions but good people of strength and character. Our goal is to become a healthy and fun part of your life. We have produced over a hundred state, national, and international champions, but most of our members don’t actually compete but simply enjoy working out and learning in our friendly atmosphere. From beginning classes to family judo, women’s judo to kata, we have classes of various levels for children and adults alike. You can join us at any time. Regular promotional exams will have you going from white belt to yellow and, hopefully, all the way to black. Friends and family are always welcome to watch. We also offer Judo & Japanese Culture Summer Camp, which is an adventure in physical and cultural education for children from 5 to 14. Please see our website for more information!
