Judo, meaning "gentle way", is a modern martial art, combat and Olympic sport created in Japan in 1882 by Jigoro Kano. Its most prominent feature is its competitive element, where the objective is to either throw or takedown an opponent to the ground, immobilize or otherwise subdue an opponent with a pin, or force an opponent to submit with a joint lock or a choke. Strikes and thrusts by hands and feet as well as weapons defenses are a part of judo, but only in pre-arranged forms and are not allowed in judo competition or free practice. A judo practitioner is called a judoka.
My name is Gali Amit.
I teach and coach Judo for over a decade.
I work with kindergardners that first learn how to roll, along with professional adolescent and adults competing at the national and international levels.
I started Judo when I was 5 years old, and worked my way into the national squad winning personal and team titles along the years.
I studied to be a licenced Coach and Therapist in The Academic College at Wingate.
I'd like to invite you to join my Judo family!
