It is vital to continue training during COVID-19. Keeping your physical and mental health in a positive state will not only make you feel better but keep you sharp for when your dojo re-opens.
Olympic Judo Coach & World Champion Jimmy Pedro has created the "Ultimate Home Judo Workout" that anybody of any fitness level or judo experience level can do!
The FUJI Training Bands are perfect to stay active and sharp at home, at the gym, or on the go!
The ultimate training tool. Whether you're training at home, working out outside, or looking to step up your overall game, the Training Bands are for you! The Training Bands can be used to develop strength, speed, coordination, grip strength, and overall accuracy when it comes to executing techniques.
The Training Bands come with a 10' long bungee cord, two carbines and three gi ends - two sleeves and one lapel.
