I remember when I was a child, feeling uncertainty about beginning martial arts. I wondered if I had what it took to succeed and I wasn’t the most athletic or confident child - quite the opposite. Little did I know that beginning my martial arts journey would be one of the most profound experiences of my life!
When I opened my school in 2006, I made a commitment to serving and empowering the community of Fredericksburg by teaching children and adults the confidence, leadership, and fitness skills that can only be achieved through martial arts.

Judo is the style of martial arts practiced by Wall 2 Wall Martial Arts students.Judo is a relatively modern Martial Art that is derived from earlier Japanese fighting styles. Judo places an emphasis on throwing opponents and subduing them via pins and locks, making it an effective self-defense form, as well as a sport that even children can participate in.
Judo means ‘the gentle way,’ and it generally lacks the emphasis on striking common to other martial arts. It remains an effective means of self-defense, however, by relying on throwing and flipping a larger or more powerful adversary to the ground, then applying ground combat techniques to control an opponent once they are in a position of disadvantage.
Rather than relying on striking back, it allows the student to use his or her opponent’s strength against them, and subdue them without exerting undue—or unavailable—amounts of power and strength. Judo is meant to be conservative with energy, meaning that it shouldn’t take all of one’s strength to pull off moves to stop an opponent. It’s also meant to transform the student into a person more likely to contribute to society by emphasizing discipline and increasing focus.
