About our Club
On September 1, 2017 our club changed its official name to York Judo & BJJ from Newmarket Budokan Judo Club.
We have a rich history in Judo in the Budokan family which began in 1959 with the judo club here in Newmarket starting in 1996.
Our new name is reflects the fact that we service more than just Newmarket. More than 50% of our members come from different areas in York Region such as Aurora, Richmond Hill, Vaughan, Markham, Keswick, and even Mount Albert!
Our name also evolved to identify to others that we are more than just judo, but that we also train in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. By offering Judo and BJJ training, our students learn to deal with practical situations that may occur standing up or while on the ground.
Thank you for being part of our long history, and now becoming part of our new identity and tradition!
