Judo is a fantastic form of exercise that will help you lose weight, build muscle, get flexible and improve your endurance. The reason Judo is so effective is that it works nearly every part of your body during intense parts of the workout, similar to High-Intensity-Interval-Training. The best part is it does all of this without ever feeling like you are "exercising".
Judo is a tremendous confidence builder. Judoka learn how to harness their minds and their bodies to do things they may have never expected they were capable of. It helps individuals learn how to overcome their fears and control their emotions and impulses. Judo also teaches valuable social skills and creates meaningful relationships with others.
Judo is very detail oriented and to be effective when practicing Judo you must sharpen your mind as much as you strengthen your body. Learning Judo will make you look at problems in a different light, and approach challenges both inside and outside the dojo in a new and enlightened way. Many practitioners say Judo has helped them tremendously in their professionals and personal lives by helping them to be more mindful and learning that there are many ways to solve a problem.
