Our instructors are highly qualified in their respective sport. Most of our judo instructors
were elite athletes from the Beijing judo team or the China national team. Head instructor
Yang Li also worked as the head judo coach to the Beijing women's judo team. Our philosophy
is to make judo more accessible to amateur participants who are outside the
professional sport system; to
teach the philosophy of judo, help children to achieve more self-discipline, confidence,
respect, make them more skilled and become stronger physically and mentally. For adults judo can still be a very useful
self-defense martial art, as well as a great way to stay in shape. Those who
want to focus on competition, our instructors can offer their wealth of
experience as well as highly skilled training partners.
