The aim of Judo
is to perfect oneself
by systematic training of the mind and body
so that each person works in harmony
with themselves and ultimately with all others.
- Jigoro Kano, founder of Judo
Welcome to the Dakota Budokan!

Whether you train for fun, for fitness, for personal growth or for competition, we have a program for you!
We offer classes for all ages and experience levels. We have students ranging in age from 4 yrs-60+.
Following Judo's principle of Mutual welfare and benefit, our adult programs are welcoming and supportive. The adult class trains hard but with the freedom to train to the level they are comfortable with. With the support of fellow class mates, we work together to constantly improve one another... What was once difficult may soon become easy.
Our kids programs are truly special to us as we are developing not only future martial artists, but most importantly, members of our own community. Our youth class involves kids ages 4-13.
Kids classes focus on the art and sport of Judo as well basic self-defense techniques known as Goshin Jutsu.
