What our clients say

  • Absolutely love this Judo Club. Perfect balance of gentle spirit yet train to win! Sensei Rick and Ray have a fantastic approach to keep the kids disciplined but having fun which keeps them wanting to come back 2-3 times a week + tournaments. Highly recommend this club!

  • My almost 6 year old son has been going there for over 2 months now. He is noticably stronger than before; being able to hike 10 km trail within 5 hrs. He absolutely loves going there. I believe that one can only be good at something by practicing. I love how they offer 3 sessions per week. We tried other martial arts place for kid before and they only do 1/2 hr per session and 1 session a week. Meh, nothing good sticked with him over the period we were there. Apart from judo techniques, Rick and Ray focus on building up the endurance for the kids as well. Usually in fight, if one runs out of stamina first, they are in disadvantage. That is another plus. At the end of each session, the kids always get their chance to try out their new technique with partners. All being said, absolutely recommended ;)

  • Best judo instruction in Toronto. I’ve been with Rick and Ray for years now and have nothing but great things to say about this school. These two simply have more experience, patience and skill in instruction than you are going to find anywhere else. There is a reason why parents keep bringing their children back for years, and why those children grow up and come back to train as adults. Rick and Ray really are making better people as much as they are making judokas. Top notch kids program. Also a great adults program, especially for beginners as well as older hobbyists such as myself who are looking to learn the basics while still being able to go to work the next day. Take advantage of this opportunity.
