The Judokai is the Dallas home for Judo, Jiu-Jitsu, and Wrestling – the way it ought to be. Training focuses on throwing / take-downs, grappling, submissions, and self-defense. The Judokai started in 1990 and has served the Telecom Corridor region of North Dallas, Richardson, Plano and Murphy Texas ever since. We are proud to be one of the oldest martial arts organizations in the DFW metroplex.
Our Judokai Warriors are women, men, and children of all experience levels ranging in age from 6 and up. Our instructors are nationally certified with over 30 years of coaching experience and focus on the needs of each individual student. Together they worked to make The Judokai one of the most well known Judo organizations in Texas.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Wrestling, Submission Grappling, Sambo, and Mixed Martial Arts enthusiasts are encouraged to join.
The Judokai believes in strong traditional fundamentals, but a modern safe interpretation of competition rules where there is no differentiation between Jiu-Jitsu, Wrestling, Sambo, Pankration, etc. Training methods, names, and contest rules will vary by style and origin; Japanese, Greco-Roman, Brazilian, etc. But good technique is good technique, period.
That’s the way it ought to be

Black Belts and Coaches
The Judokai has the depth and experience that other schools strive to achieve. Our instructors are active local members who have literally “been there and done that” in Dallas since 1990. We don’t need to use anyone else’s name or logo on our front door. No purple belts running this school. No black belts that are too young to drive either.
