Judo is an Olympic sport and an excellent form of self-defence as well as being an important part of Mixed Martial Arts. Judo is integral part of the training at Carlson Gracie Team and we house a British Judo Association club, allowing our members to grade in Judo at the academy.

Training in Judo will give the student excellent balance and agility as well as the ability to finish a fight quickly and emphatically.

Judo training is similar to BJJ in that live sparing (Randori) plays an important role in developing the students’ abilities and again, technique and leverage are of paramount importance rather than brute strength.

All of the Judo classes at Carlson Gracie Farnborough are taken by Danny Williams. Danny is a black belt Judoka and is part of Team GB Judo and also a purple belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
