Vero Beach Karate Association: Judo Program

Judo has its Martial Arts roots in Japan. Rather than utilizing punches, strikes, or kicks, Judo revolves around throws, holds, and escapes. Thus, these types of techniques make up the focus of Judo training.

The VBKA's Judo Program was developed by Mr. Gene Romeo, a 6th Degree Black Belt with over 40 years of experience.


Judo training is a great addition to any martial arts program because it rounds out the training. At VBKA it serves as an excellent and effective parallel training protocol for the Jiu-Jitsu (the self-defense) aspect of the program.
