We are so thankful to have Jennifer train with us and help our small Jr. Judokas and beginners as always. Jennifer has done Judo since she was 8 years old and she has always given back to this sport into her Adult hood as an inspiration to us all. We love her and are so very proud of her. Can't wait for her next visit. We wish her safe travels back home.

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.
