The ancient Japanese art of Judo translates to “gentle way” and teaches discipline, while developing strength and agility. Depending on age and skill level, the all-level classes are held Wednesday and Friday evenings from 7:15pm – 8:15pm and the open mat advanced classes for ages 13yo+ are from 8:15pm – 9:15pm at the Carmichael Sports Complex in the gymnastic building at 3445 Benton St in Santa Clara. 

In order to participate you also need to join the United States Judo Federation (USJF) for $70/yr. membership and are also required to have a Judo gi (uniform). Membership in USJF also provides the opportunity to participate in Judo tournaments called “Shiai”, though prior approval by the Sensei is required in order to compete. 

Judo classes run year round and fees are $300 per year ($25 per month). Monthly fees are prorated based on the month of sign-up. 

For more information contact the PAL office at 408.615.4879 or Sensei David at david@judo.net for further class details and information regarding USJF membership and judo gi’s.
