  • How old do you have to be to do judo at EBJI?

We accept children from 5 years old. There is no upper age limit.

  • How much is the tuition?

When you first sign up, the introductory rate is $250 per student and $125 for every student in the same family thereafter (2 students $375, 3 students $500)

This introductory rate covers the first month of tuition, USJF membership (our national governing body, which is a requirement for all members) and a brand new judo gi.

  • What are the monthly dues?

As stated above, dues are $125 per month for the advanced class, or $100 per month for the other classes for 1 student. Family discounts are available, ask about them when you sign up.

  • Do you have a drop in fee?

Yes, the drop in fee is $20 per class. Please make sure you bring your current USJF membership card as proof of registration.

  • Are there any other hidden costs?

No. However, since we are a non-profit organization and all of our instructors donate their time to teach, we frequently do fundraisers and ask for donations, but it is not a requirement of membership.

  • Do you offer student discounts?

We do not offer student discounts at this time.

  • Where can I get forms to join?

You can come by EBJI (address on top right of this page).

  • How do I sign up?

If you or your child would like to try a lesson before signing up, we do offer a free trial lesson. If you are interested, please come to the dojo 15-20 minutes before the appropriate class time to fill out some paperwork and borrow a uniform for that day. No appointment is necessary.

For all other questions, please feel free to contact EBJI.
