What is KUDO?
Daido juku kudo (or kudo for short) is a mixed budo (Japanese martial art) sport comprising full contact punches, kicks, throws and on-ground submission techniques. Not only is kudo a combination of boxing, karate, jujitsu, sambo and judo, it serves as a method of self defence, and provides both long- term physical health benefits and strength of mind.
Kudo was founded in 1981 by Takashi Azuma, the 1977 Full Contact Kyokushin National Champion. It is currently practiced by over 150,000 people in over 50 countries and is on the fast track to becoming an Olympic event.
Why train in KUDO?
Kudo will provide you with a firm skill set to handle yourself in real self defence situations – you will also develop a strength of mind and body whether you just want to live well or as a skill mixed martial arts fighter.
The synergy from combining the best strategies and techniques from boxing, karate, jujitsu, judo and sambo, means kudo creates extremely well-rounded and formidable fighters skilled in striking, grappling, ground fighting and throwing.
