Kids-Only Class (Fridays 5-7pm)

Stanford Judo offers a kids-only judo class for boys and girls ages 5+ to raise funds for the adult program and as a service to the local community. Judo is a great way for kids to have fun while developing self-confidence, control, and respect for others. If you are a parent of a child who may be interested in judo, we invite you to come watch or try our kids' class at no charge. Enrollment is always open.

More experienced students are encouraged to compete in local youth tournaments and to participate in semiannual judo camps, run by Sensei Tamayo in the winter and summer.

For adult classes, the quarterly fee for Stanford students is $100, and for non-Stanford students is $140, payable to "Stanford Judo."

For kids' classes, dues are paid at the beginning of each month. Cash or check is accepted. Please make checks payable to "Stanford Judo." Kids' class (monthly) fees:
