Recently, the Visalia Parks & Recreation Department's Visalia Judo Club hosted their Spring Judo Tournament.
The event was very well received with over 250 students and spectators attending from the Central Valley as well Northern and Southern California.
Judo, originating from nineteeth-century Japan, is both an art and science. Its rich medieval heritage combined with a modern scientific approach makes Judo the exciting sport it is today!
Students learn how to use their own strength as they develop martial arts skills. This discipline focuses on mutual respect as well as moral and ethical development.
Thank you to everyone that came out to participate in this great event! Here are the names and placements of students from our very own Visalia Judo Club. Congratulations!
