Welcome to the El Toro Judo Club

Making Falling Fun!

Conveniently located in South Orange County, California, the El Toro Judo Club is a great place to learn and practice the Olympic sport of Judo. Led by Sensei Joe Kajita (8th Dan) and Keith Chu (6th Dan), our dojo provides a safe and fun environment for the whole family. Classes are held on weekday evenings and during the
day on the weekend.

Please refer to the dojo schedule for class times.

We are always happy to have visitors. If you are curious about the sport of Judo, please stop by
to watch a class or take a free introductory lesson.

Congratulations to Kayla Harrison

Kayla does it again, winning her second Olympic Gold Medal at the RIO 2016 Olympic Games.
