Our son Nikola has officially been at this Dojo for one full year now and is thriving in this environment. Sensei Riley is there to teach Judo and much more with goal setting, a constant reminder of respect, kindness, and overall doing the right thing each day. He is in tune with each child speaking and instructing them with discipline and respect. I just love this place and look forward to each class and my son's development overall.

Pedro's is a remarkable place. I knew that the martial arts, if practiced right, could instill confidence and positivity in my kids, and Pedro's and Sensei Riley have not disappointed. I have three kids at Pedro's: Ages, 9, 8 and 6 and all three have enjoyed the experience, learned a lot and improved in strength, coordination and their belief in what they can accomplish! The classes are run well and on time, and there are plenty of chances for the kids to work toward promotion and participate in tournaments. We are glad we chose Pedro's Judo!

Jacob has just finished his third year of training at Pedro's. We could not be happier with his progress. We started down this path hoping for better school and home behavior, a little more focus and lot more patience and discipline. In three years the change has been remarkable! Our rambunctious, full of energy little boy has grown up- learned how to respect teachers, staff, parents and so much more- while still keeping his silly, charming personality. Sensei Riley is kind, understanding, beyond patient and a true cheerleader! We are so grateful to all the staff for being on this ride with us!

I would absolutely recommend Pedro's Judo Center, we have had such a great experience and look forward to many more years of fun. This has been a great way for my four year old son to improve so many areas like focus and self-control all while being physically active and having fun.

I think my favorite part of this program is that they make this so much more than the classes that you attend at the dojo each week. They make such an effort to involve the entire family, we love the in house tournaments, promotion nights, kids movie nights, and much more. The other mom's and I even got to join in the class with them this morning in honor of Mother's Day for a pink belt, I'm not sure which one of us had more fun!

Try something different from the same old routine

Adult 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. Judo is both an Olympic sport and a martial art – and it’s fun to learn. Our curriculum covers all different techniques such as throws, pins, turnovers, and submissions.

Results and growth with every class!

Studying Adult 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.

Adult Martial Arts Builds Muscle and Maximizes Physical Fitness

Adult 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, Adult 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.

Adult Martial Arts Teaches Practical Self-Defense Techniques

The thought of having to defend yourself against a bigger, stronger assailant might be scary, but Adult 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, Adult Judo helps leverage even a small body into a huge problem for an attacker.

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

Adult Martial Arts 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 Adult 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.

Adult Martial Arts Competitions Provide a Unique Challenge

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

Adult Judo encourages students to train live in a friendly competitive environment. Students can also choose to compete to prove their ability or to advance to new levels of achievement.

Adult Judo students are also encouraged (but not required) to try competitions as they 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!

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 Adult Martial Arts?

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

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 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.

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.
