FINDING A FITNESS ROUTINE YOU CAN ENJOY SHOULD NOT BE A DIFFICULT TASK.

We know how busy life can be - it's easy to forget how important your mental and physical health is, which is why Seiei Dojo is here to help with our Judo program.

Whether you’re interested in physical fitness, self-defense, or even an athletic social outlet, our school maintains a safe and positive environment for you to achieve your goals.

More than just a combat sport, Judo offers students a code of ethics – that is, a way of living and being. At Seiei Dojo, every member is taught and live by its code of ethics, Respect, Discipline, Commitment, and Honor. 

The Seiei Dojo martial arts curriculum provides a great way for adults to stay in shape. It won’t become dull or routine because as soon as you get better and continue learning, there are always more challenges ahead to keep you inspired and coming back for more!

Traditional meets modern at Seiei Dojo. Let us help you reach your fitness goals while experiencing confidence and stress relief.

The Seiei Dojo Plan: To Help You Achieve Your Goals.

Seiei Dojo teaches traditional martial arts in a fun and safe environment.

The students in our programs experience a number of life-changing physical and mental benefits.

You will find yourself more focused and competitive in both your business life and personal life. You will perform better, feel better, and overall, be better. All you have to do is get started to start seeing the benefits! Stop doing the same mindless exercises at the gym and start working out with a purpose.

Practice Makes Perfect

A major part of Judo instruction is safety, beginning with the teaching of ukemi (falling correctly). This is critical since it is designed to prevent the student from being injured during training when they hit the ground.

Other components of training include drilling, form practice, and of course, sparring, which is overseen by the Sensei.

In a life-threatening situation, the pinning techniques Judo teaches are also helpful for keeping a mugger or other attacker down without putting yourself in excessive danger. The chokeholds and body locks (at last resort, of course, since Judo is only a defensive art) are capable of restraining an attacker without having to continually try to strike them.

IN JUDO, SIZE DOESN’T MATTER

Judo remains an effective means of self-defense by relying on throwing and flipping a larger or more powerful adversary to the ground, then applying ground combat techniques to control an opponent once they are in a position of disadvantage.

Rather than relying on striking back, it allows the student to use his or her opponent’s strength against them, and subdue them without exerting undue—or unavailable—amounts of power and strength.

Judo is meant to be conservative with energy, meaning that it shouldn’t take all of one’s strength to pull off moves to stop an opponent. It’s also meant to transform the student into a person more likely to contribute to society by emphasizing discipline and increasing focus.

What Other Members Are Saying:

I have always wanted to do Judo but it has been hard to find a school nearby. My jiu jitsu classes started being held here and I am so happy that they were because it gave me the wonderful opportunity to try judo here! I am absolutely hooked! Sensei June is such a nice person, he makes newbies like me feel so welcome and does not let my first time jitters get to me! I am so grateful to have such a traditional, respected, and highly skilled judo school nearby to attend. I just wish I had more free time so I could come more often! I will have to make time at least once a week for this incredible martial art as it is very beneficial to any person, gender, age, weight, Judo is for everyone! :)

I have been joining martial arts gyms for over 25 years :) perpetual white belt. This is by far the best gym/club I have ever been to. The space is large and welcoming...and everyone is one great big family.  If you are single and looking for a great place to hang out and get fit...come to Seiei.  If you are not single do the same.  It's really the coolest place ever. Instant family without the drama and the side effect is pants that fits. Win - win.

You will receive an email with instructions on how to schedule your first class. One of our instructors will call you, or you may call the school directly.

No, you learn “A proper way to defend yourself.”

Throwing is not the first thing you learn in judo. Learning how to properly fall is the first thing you learn as it is essential to prevent injuries from being thrown. Also, knowing how to fall correctly is a skill that can prevent many unnecessary injuries in other aspects of life such as running, biking, skiing, rollerblading, ice skating, and etc.  Seiei Dojo is the only dojo in the area with permanent padded mats on top of a spring-loaded support platform system that minimizes the impact of falls, like gymnastic mats. 

No. Judo is a defensive martial art which focuses on grappling and control. In many cases, the smaller person has the advantage. There are Kata (forms) that include striking, but it is only practiced by higher-ranking Judokas.

Judo is practiced in a Judo Gi. For the first month or so it is not required but highly recommended. If you are trying out, you are welcome to borrow a gi from our collection. A judo gi will become necessary to practice and learn judo techniques. Jiu-Jitsu gis are allowed in practice if you already have one, an actual judo gi is mandatory for competition. Karate gis do not perform well in Judo class and often rip. 

Judo is not for impatient people. It could take 6 years or more and it depends on how much you are committed and dedicated to learning it. Regular competition participation helps lessen the years to black belt especially if you're on top of your games and standing on the medal podium most of the time. Students under 16  years old are rarely promoted to black belt unless they are exceptional Judo practitioners and competitors. Earning a black belt in judo means you can handle and defend yourself from much bigger and stronger attackers in real life if necessary.

Our Martial Arts classes' primary goal is to make sure our students have fun in a enjoyable, safe environment. Come and see a class for yourself - we all have a blast and our instructors do too.

No, our classes are a good mix of men and women of all fitness levels. Beginners train alongside some of the more experienced members, helping each other out in an enjoyable team environment. Generally, martial arts fitness can increase a person’s strength, stability, stamina, flexibility, and explosive power.
