Why Choose Toronto’s Budokai Judo Club?

Judo is our specialty and the martial art that we excel at. We are black belts certified by Judo Ontario, Judo Canada, The International Judo Federation (IJF) and the The Kodokan Judo Institute, Tokyo, Japan.
Our focus is on teaching judo to children and kids, girls and boys (aged 5+) and adults (men and women) to learn and develop skills at the sport and martial art of judo in a safe and rewarding environment. Budokai’s goal is to imbue its students through the practice of judo with confidence and courage – precepts that will carry over into many other aspects of their lives.
Exceptional and Humble Toronto Judo Instructors
Born and raised in Toronto, Senseis Rick Koglin and Ray Litvak pride themselves as teachers of students who have gone on to earn their black belts and win medals provincially, nationally and globally through competition. They are child-friendly and patient instructors with over 70 years of combined judo experience through teaching, practicing and competition. Rick and Ray instill respect and show students how to protect and conduct themselves in and out of the Dojo.
Toronto Judo Club for Kids both big and small
Judo is ideal for kids who are just learning about themselves and the world around them. As a parent, you can’t always be there to protect your child or shield them from the bully. What you can do is provide them with tools to build confidence and courage on their own. This is what they’ll learn at Budokai Judo Club.
*Parents: Unlike some martial arts clubs, Budokai Judo Club is not a baby-sitting service. We teach competitive and recreational judo classes to kids 5 years of age and up. Your child will learn proper judo techniques and etiquette under the supervision of highly qualified, experienced judo instructors. With a ratio of 1 black belt instructor for every 10 kids, we guarantee it!
Benefits of Judo for kids
Judo provides both psychological and physical benefits to its students. In addition, they also learn an effective form of self-defense. Since Judo was first developed in 1882, participants have learned the rewards of building character, confidence and courage through discipline and rigorous training.
