A 150-pound individual engaging in judo for 10 minutes burns approximately 113 calories. Judo works the entire body and is an intense exercise that burns a moderate to high number of calories. However, most judo bouts are much shorter than 10 minutes in length.
Most hour long judo classes devote most of the time to warming up and learning techniques rather than engaging in intense, calorie-burning bouts of judo. The number of calories burned during a class depends on the intensity, duration and type of exercise and the size and weight of the individual. Larger and heavier individuals burn more calories per minute.
