Academy of Okinawan Karate

Taught by Shuri-ryu Chief Instructor Joey Johnston

Judo, or the "gentle way," is a Japanese martial art similar in some respects to wrestling. Judo is an Olympic sport and includes throws and sweeps, as well as grappling techniques such as pins and joint manipulation. We teach traditional Kodokan Judo as established by the founder of Judo, Professor Jigoro Kano. 

Judo classes are included with all karate students' enrollments, so come try a judo class today! 

If you're interested in judo, give us a call at 309-692-2499 and we'll happy to set you up with an introductory lesson.

Peoria's judo classes are Thursday nights at 8pm.

Judo classes are also available at our Morton dojo!
