We pride ourselves on teaching and practicing traditional Judo principles as taught at the Kodokan in Japan.

Chicago Tenri Judo Dojo, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization committed to promoting the sport of Judo and promoting Judo’s principles as taught by its founder, Jigoro Kano.
All of our instructors are certified coaches with USA Judo. All are volunteers who teach for the love of Judo and to pay it forward as a way to give back to future generations, that which they were so generously taught.
The diversity of our teaching staff allows us to teach juniors and senior players of all levels: Physical exercise, a social sport activity, a disciplined martial art, AND up to and including high level competitive Judo.
