Hello Migoto Judo Families,

It has been a long tough year for everyone. We hope things are getting better for you and your family. The health and wellbeing of everyone has been and will continue to be a top priority for us. It has been really strange not being able to see you all and to practice together but it looks like things are getting better.

We are happy to announce that we will be opening up in June to modified training and classes. The sessions will be in person but with modified exercises and a modified schedule. In order to best prepare for classes please indicate your interest in attending in person classes and verify that your student will attend:


6pm to 6:45pm – Kids 5-6 year old
7pm to 8:15pm – 7-15 year old
8:30 to 9:45pm – 16 year old and up

7pm to 8:15pm – 7-15 year old
8:30 to 9:45pm – 16 year old and up

Please note these modifications:
Junior and Adult Classes will be 2 days per week. Pre-Judo (5-6yo) will be one day per week
Class sizes will be limited and students must be registered for the class to attend
Cleaning will occur between each class.
Students 16 years and older are encouraged to have vaccines in order to return to full contact
Parents/Family Members must wait in vehicle until end of classes.
• We will continue to monitor the overall situation and modify when appropriate.
• The health and safety of all members is our primary concern
• Hopefully we will add more classes/days in the near future

We look forward to hearing from you and seeing you all in person soon. Please send me a message with your intent to attend classes and the names/ages of your student. If you have any questions or concerns please reach out to me or any of the staff at Migoto Judo Dojo.

See you in the Dojo!

Kind regards,


Carlo Navida Memorial Fund, organized by Poway Wrestling 12/23/2020

Hello Migoto Judo Families,

I hope you are all doing well during these holidays. It has been a tough year for many of us and we hope that you are finding ways to thrive.

We are hopeful for a better 2021 and to being able to interact and see you all again soon.

Unfortunately, we have some sad news to share. One of our Migoto Judo Families is a victim of Covid19. Carlo Navida passed away over the weekend. It was a sudden turn of events. Most of you know his son Elias who is currently practicing Judo with us at Migoto Judo and some of you also know his 2 older sons Nathan and Christian who also practiced Judo with us in the past. Carlo leaves behind his wife Nayda and a big void in his family. We are all devastated by these events and we know that many of you want to help. There is a GoFundMe campaign setup to help the family:


Please stay safe and do what you can to avoid this terrible disease. Hopefully there is light at the end of the tunnel but in the meantime, we must continue to make decisions in the best interest of health and happiness for ourselves and our loved ones.

Please let me know if you have any questions or need to reach out to talk.

Best regards,
Sensei Roland

Hello Migoto Judo Families,

We hope that you are all adjusting to the strange times we find ourselves in. We hope that this situation will end soon but we must all do what we can to help each other through these difficult circumstances.

Judo practices are still postponed for now. We are continually monitoring the situation and options for when it would be best to resume classes. We are also considering some type of online participation or interaction.

We understand the financial burden that many of you may find yourself in. We will be suspending the accounts and payments until we can get back to a regular schedule. The accounting system that we are using automatically sends out notices and payment reminders. Please ignore those email reminders if you receive any. We will be manually making accounting adjustments. We hope you continue your long term support and membership and we look forward to resuming classes as soon as it makes sense to do so. Please continue to monitor your emails and these posts for future information and please contact me directly if you have any questions or concerns.

Best regards,

Roland Fernando

We will monitor the situation and post/email updates for class schedules.

Happy Halloween! Remember we will not have regular classes tonight. We will be having a potluck at 5:30pm and go Trick Or Treating about 6:30pm. We will go back to the dojo afterwards. Regular classes resume Tuesday.


Migoto Judo Dojo will be hosting visitors from the Japanese Navy (JMSDF TRAINING SQUADRON). They will be coming to Migoto Judo Dojo on Tuesday, June 16th for a cultural exchange and light workout from 7pm to 9:00pm. We will be having a potluck afterwards to welcome them and all of the visitors that come. We don't know yet how many are coming but expect around 10-15 judoka and visitors.
Please click on the link to sign up for the potluck. www.SignUpGenius.com/go/20F054FA5A822AB9-visit/

The Japanese Navy visited us last year and it was a great experience. They are only in San Diego for 4 days and are taking time to come visit our Dojo. Please make an extra effort to be there on time to welcome and interact with our visitors and other family members.

Our 6:00pm-6:45pm beginning Judo class will take place as usual. Students and their families are welcome to stay, meet and watch the workout with Japanese Navy visitors.

It will be great to see you all there and we hope that you can make it. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Kind regards,



Hello All,

Migoto Judo Dojo will be hosting a special event with members of the US Marines stationed at Camp Pendleton. It will be on Thursday April 9th from 7pm to 8:30pm, during our regular Judo class. We will have members of the US Marines demonstrate some self-defense techniques they use in the field, many of which are based on Judo throws and Judo ground techniques. We will get a chance to ask questions and practice some of these techniques under their guidance.

After class we will have a small potluck to thank them for their service and for taking their time to come and visit us. Please be sure be on time for class. If you are able to bring a small dish or beverages to share that is appreciated but not required.

Please let me know if you have any questions and if you are able to attend.

See you on the tatamis!
