This class was developed for our students coming of age to use these techniques in class and competition.
Adult Judo Fundamentals Class on Wednesdays
This class was formed to allow students to learn/review judo fundamentals without the full intensity of randori as in all the other Adult classes. Basic judo movement and breaking balance (kuzushi) are practiced while increasing cardiovasular stamia and flexibility. This class is great for adults competely new to judo to gain confidence and the experienced player who want to review or polish fundamentals with less impact.

Kokushikai Judo Academy takes great pride in the fact that we are able to keep our tuition rates very affordable for our members. Students also have the confidence that our instructors are dedicated to the dojo on a full time basis, not as a hobby. Kokushikai is one of the only schools that does not charge for every rank of student promotions. New members quickly discover the quality experience of training in such a pristine, clean dojo for the number of students that train here. But in order to maintain such high standards in our facility and maintain the quality of training for our Members, $75 is collected in annual membership/facility dues with a maximum of $140 per family of 2 or more members. No dues are collected if the student has not been a member for more than 3 months.

Third family member receives 15% off monthly fee as long as first and second family members are enrolled. Fourth family member receives 20% off monthly fee as long as first, second and third family members are enrolled.
Private Lessons Private lessons are also available and are good for many reasons but are more costly per hour than the group classes.

1. Acquire a base of skills and confidence before you enter the group judo class.
2. Practice in a super-controlled environment at your own pace under supervision.
3. Develop strategy for your specific body type against trouble opponents.
4. Get the extra edge in training for a tournament you have coming up.
5. Understand judo applications as they apply to other combative situations such as BJJ, no-gi fighting, self-defense or police tactics.
One hour private lesson (one person): $150
