Great job and great effort Alexander @ the High School Nationals in San Jose, CA this past weekend. Making it all the way to the Semifinals and 1 match away from bronze medal in the repechage. Finishing 5th in a tournament like this with only a few weeks to prepare is a very great effort. Keep up the effort Alexander.

Putting the extra work for conditioning this past Saturday. Very proud of each Judoka who attended they kept their pace and finished to the end with everyone, great job. We will try this every month throughout the winter and spring. Details for our next conditioning session will follow soon.


It was a beautiful day this past Saturday for Judo followed by some family food and fun. It was wonderful to see Judokas and their families, interact in a safe way but still manage to enjoy each others company. All Dojos should continue to share the positives of Judo even while we go through this adversity... let's come out stronger in 2021. Wishing all a healthy and happy Holiday Season.


Dojo reopens tomorrow for practice as regularly scheduled! Please make sure to check your email for the new guidelines. For new students looking to join or inquire, this is by appointment only for now. See everyone soon.


As the State mandate has been lifted as of this week, we are excited to announce the reopening of the Dojo starting the week of June 1st to commence our regular practices with precautionary measures and CDC guidelines. Members please check your email for updates. See you soon 😊


To Our Dearest Members,
As we continue through another week of the COVID-19 Pandemic the safest and healthiest course for our Judokas and their families is to keep the Dojo closed for the time being. We will continue to monitor State and City Mandates as to when we will be able to re-open the Dojo. To all our Judokas and their families thank you so very much for your continued support, stay safe and we will be training together again in the near future.
Any questions at all please contact us.
