Interested in becoming a student?

We are a private dojo (not commercial) and most classes are semi-private. Training times are Monday and Wednesday’s 7:45-9:15pm.. The class is focused on adults; however, with permission, we may make exceptions to accept younger students if a parent trains along with them. 


If you are interested in becoming a student, we ask that you first read all the information in this website and then this page. Since we invest considerable time with new students, we have a process to help determine it will be mutually beneficial for you to join our school.  The process is described below.




If you are interested in becoming a member of our school, we ask that you please send an email to or complete our Contact Us form with a little information about yourself, what interests you in our school and any martial arts experience you may have add.  Please feel free to also include any questions.  One of us will respond typically within a day or so.  Usually, we like to have a follow up phone call to help determine if our school may be a good fit for what you are looking for. 


If we mutually agree to move forward, we ask that you virtually observe a class and then afterwards meet with a teacher and one of the students to answer any questions you may have as well as give us a chance to get to know you a bit more. If all is well, we will invite you to observe an in-person class. If we are in accord that our school is the right fit, then you will be invited to join our school. 





For the first few classes, it is okay to wear loose clothing like sweat pants until you have a judogi (martial arts pants and top). We can help you purchase one or, if you  already have one, you are welcome to wear it. Judogi typically can cost between $50 to $200 depending on quality and weight. 


There is also a $35 enrollment fee to help cover insurance.  Dues are expected to be paid by the 1st of each month and are $100/month. There is a family discount, if more than one family member joins.
