Martial Arts & Self-Defense Academy

Judo & Sambo Academy is a Judo school in Glendale, Hollywood, CA and Palm Coast, FL that focuses on real self-defense techniques for children & adults of all ages. Our training methods are unique because we combine all of the street-tested techniques of Japanese Judo, Russian Combat Sambo & Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu to make sure that every Judo & Sambo Academy student can protect him/herself in any situation. In addition to our self-defense program, we also cover the Sport side of Martial Arts and if you are looking to become an active competitor in Judo, Sambo, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Submission Grappling, or MMA (Mixed Martial Arts), then Judo & Sambo Academy is your #1 choice for martial arts training. Our training methods are unmatched due to our wide knowledge and experience in Judo, Sambo, Jiu-Jitsu & Submission Grappling. We attend dozens of grappling tournaments every year and our competition team (Team Zurab) is widely known throughout Florida & California as a fierce competitor (GI and No Gi). Visit our Students Awards page to see how well our students perform in competitions.
