At Eastside Dojo we teach competitive judo. We think that competition drives  motivation to learn and improve. And we think competition teaches sportsmanship and  performing under stressful situations. We will have dojo member only tournaments, as well there  are a variety of local, regional, state, and national tournaments available for those who wish to compete. However, there will be no requirement for students to compete and promotions will be based on effort, knowledge, and proficiency in technical skills. see event schedule
