Pedro's is an amazing place for kids to grow and learn. It is not just about athleticism and strength in the dojo, but they build character, confidence and discipline. These men and women are exceptional role models and have helped shape our son to an amazing young man. The expectations/behaviors go far beyond the walls of Pedro's and we couldn't be happier with our experience!

Are you dealing with

Any of these troubles?

Do you want to lose weight and tone your muscles?

Do you want to feel prepared to defend yourself if you need to?

Are you ready to feel new levels of self-confidence and pride?

Getting in shape is important for people of all ages and sizes

Try something different from the same old routine

Studying martial arts provides you with a physical challenge combined with a mental one – and teaches you to defend yourself, too.

Judo is a unique form of martial arts that teaches students to leverage their body weight to use in the ring or against an attacker. A descendant of Judo, Judo is both a sport and a martial art – and it’s fun to learn.

Results and growth with every class!

Studying Judo can help you get in the best shape of your life. It’s a great way to lose weight, tone your muscles, and learn the key things you need to know to be able to defend yourself – even against an opponent who’s larger than you are.

Judo Builds Muscle and Maximizes Physical Fitness

Judo provides an intense, full-body workout that’s the perfect way to lose weight, increase your muscle mass, and get into great shape.

By combining cardiovascular training with toning and training, Judo students push their bodies hard and learn what they are capable of.

It’s a great way to burn calories in a fun and supportive setting that encourages all students to do their best.

Judo Teaches Practical Self-Defense Techniques

The thought of having to defend yourself against a bigger, stronger assailant might be scary, but Judo is designed to help you overcome your fears.

By teaching students to take the fight to the ground where they can use chokeholds and other effective techniques to defend themselves, Judo helps leverage even a small body into a huge problem for an attacker.

Best of all, Judo builds strength and agility, both of which help in self-defense situations.

Judo Students Walk with Confidence and Pride

There’s no feeling quite like the feeling of knowing that your body is strong, agile, and able to do whatever you want it to do.

Studying Judo gives students the knowledge that they can leverage their body’s strength to accomplish things they never thought possible.

Over time, it increases self-confidence and pride – and that carries over to work, home, and every area of your personal life.

Judo Competitions Provide a Unique Challenge

Students who have a natural competitive drive love Judo because it’s a sport as well as a self-defense method.

Judo requires students to spar and fight in class. They can also choose to compete to prove their ability or to advance to new levels of achievement.

Judo competitions help students set goals and work toward them – and to relish the experience of victory.

Great training with great people! Thanks for the hospitality everyone!

Technical tough competitors. Lots of experience on this mat. If you want to get in shape and learn from the best, this is the place.

Derek Tc Richardson

We have been members at Pedro's Judo Center for 9 years and I cannot emphasize more how beneficial the training for my daughters has been. My eldest was the first to start and within several months I was amazed at the level of change in her confidence. The effect was both personal and athletic. I decided to enroll my younger daughter and the effect was even quicker. From the ceiling of the Judo Center hang 4 signs. The signs are emblazoned with the words CONFIDENCE, FOCUS, RESPECT and DISCIPLINE. The instructors at Pedro's do a great job of stressing these values to their students. If you admire these values as much as I do, you should bring your children to Pedro's Judo. My elder daughter emphasized to me the old saying that, "The family that plays together...stays together." so I enrolled myself. The decision to enroll my family at Pedro's Judo is one of the best i've ever made!

Do I need to know jiu-jitsu or Judo to study Judo?

No, you don’t. There are beginner classes available and many of the people who study Judo have no prior martial arts training.

Is there a belt system in Judo?

Yes. Students work their way through five belt levels: white, blue, purple, brown, and black. Each belt has four stripes to help students monitor their progress – and once you earn a black belt, you can proceed to new levels based on how long you have been studying Judo.

Do I need any special equipment to study Brazilian Martial Arts?

Students typically wear a Gi (two-piece garment worn by martial artists.) It is also typical for male students to wear a cup, and some students may want to wear a mouth guard. It’s a good idea to have a supply of athletic tape, as well.

As a beginner, do I need to spar?

No. Beginner classes focus on teaching basic techniques and safety, and you can then work your way up to controlled sparring in class.

Can Judo help me defend myself?

Absolutely. It’s one of the world’s most effective self-defense techniques and is often preferred because it teaches students to leverage their body weight to defeat larger opponents.

Will taking Judo classes help me lose weight?

It can, particularly if you combine Judo classes with a healthy diet and lifestyle. Judo provides a great, full-body workout that burns calories, builds muscles, and boosts the metabolism.
