Adult Beginner’s Judo

We have started a new class - Beginner's Judo...





Bojuka Ryu has been a place to discover the martial arts for children and adults on the Monterey Peninsula for over 53 years. Whatever your reason is to train, practice, and study, you will learn at your own pace towards the goal that you desire.
Through our art we strive to enrich each student’s life regardless of age. We work to instill an environment of self-discipline, respect, honor, patience, and giving back to the community. Whether your interest lie  in self-protection, physical fitness, competition, or self-improvement, there is a path of instruction available for you.
Bojuka Ryu teaches not only practical applications for real life situations, but also is able to modify the techniques to fit into the competition arena and adhere to the specified rules.  Conditioning is also a major focus in our training as well as the importance of mental fitness.  All of these attributes are brought together under one art.

Our student built dojo is located at 291 Carmel Avenue in Marina, CA located on the beautiful Monterey Peninsula.  You are welcome to observe a class or you can direct any inquiries to
