On Saturday, January 7th, American Judo in partnership with IJC Martial Arts in New York, judo coaches, athletes, and referees were invited to gain a better understanding of dynamics of a Judo match from the point of view of each role. Participants were able to appreciate the roles and responsibilities involved in a match more acutely after analyzing video content that provided challenging situations.

Participants walked away with a new level of appreciation of each others’ roles and better understanding of why and how the calls are made during a match. – Saro Balagezyan

During the seminar, ran by IJF A Level Referee Saro Balagezyan, coaches and athletes discussed how important it is for them to understand the rules as well as their respective roles in order to have a successful outcome in their matches…READ MORE

On Saturday, December 3rd, 2022 IJC Martial Arts athletes and coaches attended the 2022 BJJ Pride Brazilian JiuJitsu Championships which took place at Hofstra University in Long Island New York. This traditional jiu jitsu tournament held by Pride BJJ is a GI and NOGI event following the traditional rules utilized by the IBJJF.  IJC Martial Arts is so proud of our BJJ Professor Charlie Liu and his students for their outstanding performance at the event. For IJC’s Jake Pierides and Jesus Taveras, this was their first ever jiu jitsu tournament and both showed tremendous sportsmanship and skill. Jake, a seasoned IJC judo athlete, was awarded a silver and bronze medal for this gi and nogi divisions and Jesus, was awarded a silver medal for his gi division. We are so proud of all of our athletes and our coaches for their continued dedication, hard work and growth in both the martial arts and in their life journeys. IJC congratulates our coaches and athletes and looks ahead to a new year of training, competing and growth both on and off the mat. #morethansport

IJC Four Seasons Judo Tournament Series - Fall Cup 2022

On Sunday, October 30th, 2022 IJC Martial Arts, in partnership with American Judo System, held our annual Fall Judo Cup tournament – part of the IJC Four Seasons Invitational Tournament series. Fittingly, this tournament fell on International Coaches Day which solidified the sense of appreciation and honor towards the many coaches who attended and supported the event. 

IJC Martial Arts has had the pleasure of hosting these positive, fun, challenging, developmental tournaments over the years creating a strong sense of camaraderie  and support in the local Judo community. Over the years, we’ve had the privilege of watching these tournaments grow and improve. This year our Fall Cup was honored to host over 160 athletes competing in a variety of divisions ranging from youth, senior, novice, intermediate and professional competitors. Friends, families, teammates and judo enthusiasts from all around the tri-state area and beyond were able to not only attend the event and see the action first-hand, but were also able to view and review matches using the live-stream capabilities arranged by  American Judo System.….READ MORE

A Way of Life - Indeed

It has become almost cliché to discuss how much Judo has done for me in my life. It has been an unbelievably rewarding experience to transition from a white belt with almost no knowledge of martial arts to a black belt that is now passing on my knowledge to others. This experience has provided me with the confidence necessary to take on a lot of challenges in life and perform as well as possible. Perhaps the most significant of those challenges occurred in the past couple of months, when I began working for a Fortune 500 company. Starting a career in Finance is stressful for anyone, the entire industry is extremely competitive and there is very little room for error. It would have been easy to become overwhelmed by the pressure and give up on a career in this industry. However, the perseverance and discipline I learned from Judo allowed me to perform at the highest possible level throughout my internship. I was always willing to go the extra mile, even on days when I was mentally and physically exhausted. I don’t believe this would be the case if not for the experiences I’ve had in Judo. Working on excel sheets in an air-conditioned office is relatively easy when you compare it with doing 10 randoris in 100 degree weather while training in Korea or Florida. Beyond this work ethic, Judo also gave me the confidence and self-belief needed to deal with my co-workers and managers throughout my internship….READ MORE
