This past weekend was the Summer Nationals in Irvine California.  SVJ had 4 competitors.  They all played hard and did well!  We are very proud of all of them!

Congratulations to Melia who is our National Champ! And congratulations to Maya who won the Bronze Medal!

We’re getting near that time when we will be moving to our temporary home near Japantown….(1050 N 5th Street…see link below)!!

Our last class will be this Saturday (6/25/16)  And we’ll start in the new home and with the new schedule on Tuesday, July 5th.

The schedule will be changing a little bit. No classes on Thursdays and PreJudo will begin at 4:15 instead of 4pm.  (See schedule below).

We’ve been looking for a better way to help grow the dojo and we think that working with Sweat Angels is a great way to blend our need to market with our desire to help others!

So every time someone Checks-In at the dojo through Facebook, a donation is made to a worthy cause…this month is Vitamin Angels.

Please Check-In every visit and spread the word about the activity you guys love and also help out a worthy cause!

It’s Easy!!


This May, you can help provide prenatal vitamins to mothers in need by checking in on Facebook at Silicon Valley Judo! We’ve partnered with Sweat Angels and Vitamin Angels to help pregnant women and new mothers get access to life-saving and life-changing vitamins and minerals. Remember to add #love4moms when you check-in! For more information about this month’s charity, visit
