Grandmaster Mountain Kim studied Judo at Hanyoung University in Korea and was able to hone his skills to become a world bronze medalist! Since that time, he has passed down his knowledge and training to his students. Here in Culpeper, Dennis Byrne (under the guidance of Grandmaster and Master Carl Wilson) competed in Nationals in 2013 and brought home a gold medal! We also have many adults and children who have found success both on and off the mats due to their judo training. Judo is about more than just winning medals however. Judo will help boost self confidence in everyday life through hard work on the mats.
Culpeper Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is run by Yamasaki Academy’s 3rd Degree Black Belt Professor Paul Bush. Through the popularity of the UFC, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu has also gained popularity due to its unrivaled effectiveness in self defense. In class students will learn proper technique and have the ability to put those techniques to the test each class. Classes are offered for adults and children ages 7 and older. Adults and childrens classes are held at separate times. Please see schedule for details.
