Note from the Sensei

Judo and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu are great ways for you to become more active, build your self-confidence, and lead a healthier lifestyle. 

You do not have to have any athletic background or prior experience to get started. At Carmel Judo, we are always focused on the basics from our warm-ups to our techniques. 


Judo had an incredibly positive effect on my life . When I moved to Indiana I wanted to be able to share that with others and started a dojo out of my garage, this later developed into Carmel Judo. I've seen how judo can help students overcome anxiety, develop a more positive self-image, and make big life changes. These changes have ranged  from leaving jobs where they were unhappy, pursuing a graduate degree, and even standing up for themselves with previous partners that were abusive. 

Regardless of the reason why you are choosing to start your judo journey we are here to support your goals. 

Looking forward to seeing you on the mats!
