Great atmosphere for both adults and children. My son is always excited for his next judo class and enjoys attending the studio and participating in class.

My daughter has been doing judo here since she was four years old. Pedro's fosters a sense of confidence, respect and community in their students. We are so happy with them!

Pedro's Judo Center not only teaches their students Judo & help them build confidence & a strong body. They also teach them about discipline & respect, inside & outside of the Dojo.

We are so glad we found this school for our two sons. Their instructors are great & the program is phenomenal.

Sansei Casey is patient, consistent and encouraging. Both of my boys have enjoyed their first 8 weeks. It literally took their goal sticker chart to encourage my 2 yr old to become potty trained. My oldest is now more independent and helpful around the kitchen. We can’t wait to continue seeing them grow in Judo.

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!

Both my son and daughter have been doing Judo at Pedro’s for just over a year and I would highly recommend their program. Not only do they focus on physical fitness but also building confidence in the kids. My son thrives on the physical challenges of Judo and is always excited and proud of himself when he masters a new technique. He often comes off the mat after class and asks me if he can stay for the next class!! My daughter is 6 years old and has hearing loss and I enrolled her at Pedro’s with the hope of boosting her self confidence. I couldn’t be happier with the progress she’s made (both on and off the mat!) over the last year at Pedro’s. The Sensei’s are firm but kind and really bring out the best in the kids. I was so proud to see my daughter raise her hand fearlessly and ask the police officer a question during a recent visit from WPD at the Dojo!! Thank you everyone at Pedro’s!!!

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!

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!

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.

What a fun place for a birthday party for kids. Very clean with a separate space for food and cake. Ms. Allie kept all the kids engaged with fun games and music. Most certainly they slept well that night. Clean bathrooms and comfortably cool.
I would give them 5 stars!

  8. Please use the restroom before you arrive and come ready for class. We understand there are some emergencies but we want to make it safe for everyone and the constant cleaning takes us away from being able to offer attention to the class on the floor and the class on zoom.
  9. Masks will NOT be worn during training. However, masks will be worn by staff greeting & cleaning dojo during class.
  10. Students will wear gi pants and a t-shirt/rashguard. NO JUDO GI TOPS OR BELTS will be required.

  15. Each time you attend class, you will need to answer the following questions: a) Have you been in close contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19? b) Are you experiencing a cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, loss of taste/smell, or experience any other flu-like symptom? c) Have you had a fever in the last 48 hours? d) Are you immunocompromised or do you live with someone who is immunocompromised? You must answer no to all of these questions before you can attend class. We will be checking at the door. Please help your children understand these questions.
  16. Students will be temperature checked at the door by a staff member. Once your child passes or fails their temperature check, the staff member will hold up a GREEN checkmark or RED X informing you they passed or failed.
  17. You will be admitted and dismissed in an organized manner. Please follow all directions.
  18. Students should arrive no earlier than 10 minutes prior to class. They should remain in the vehicle until we can process them. See safety procedures.
  19. No one may arrive late to class in order to preserve the safety procedures we have in place and the careful planning it takes to organize the class. Arriving late to class not only disrupts the class, it requires us to change our safety protocols. THE DOORS WILL BE LOCKED ONCE CLASS STARTS.

We reserve the right to add to these policies and procedures as we deem necessary.
