Martial Arts classes are a great investment. And judo is the ultimate martial art, where you can get fit, and strengthen the mind all while having fun in the company of and with the support and encouragement of others. Finding the perfect dojo to practice does not have to be a difficult task. It is simply a matter of knowing what to look for. Consider the Eastside Dojo in the heart of Plano Texas. The dojo's offerings are also accessible in Dallas, McKinney, Allen and Richardson.
The spectacular throws (take downs) of judo separate it from other Martial Arts. Those who practice judo must rely on the cooperation of their training partners in order to perfect the techniques. The one being “thrown” offers little or no resistance as the throwing technique is practiced thus allowing the one throwingto perfect his entry or attack. Once perfected, the technique is very difficult to fend off. But judo matches are also fought on the ground. After one competitor is thrown, the match often continues on the ground, with both fighters working for a pin, or a submission by arm lock or choke. “Ground fighting”, or “grappling” is similar to Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
Unlike most other martial arts, there is no punching, kicking, or striking of any kind in judo. This distinguishes judo from Karate or Tae Kwon Do, which focus on strikes as the main emphasis of their arts.
The Eastside Dojo is unlike any other. It offers a unique combination of physical and mental conditioning. This approach helps students to not only improve their physical conditioning, but their mental conditioning as well. The Dojo also ensures that students understand and develop the discipline needed to help them establish a healthy balance between individual competition and building through teamwork. Parents whose children attend classes at the Eastside Dojo are fans of this unique approach as many of their children had difficulty in school or other sports before coming to the dojo. They watch their children grow in strength physically, improve their mental strength and build strong characters. The testimonies are endless.
Some of the benefits parents can expect from enrolling their children in the Eastside Dojo include:
- Building physical strength and improving overall fitness
- Increasing self-discipline, patience and a sense of responsibility and commitment to overcome challenges in sport and life
- Improving concentration levels as they learn to become more focused and alert
- Improve skill, wellness and the ability to compete
Affiliates And Associates
Reinforcing the commitment to a balance between healthy competition and much needed team spirit, the Eastside Dojo is affiliated with several of Texas' best local Judo clubs as well as some of the sport's governing bodies (both locally and internationally). Many of these affiliates provide a wealth of information for the development and practice of the sport of Judo as well as occasions to practice what was learned in competition. Therefore parents can rest assured that their children will be participating in Judo sessions of the highest quality, and get the best possible martial arts experience available.
