Youth Sport Judo Program
The Symbol of the Dojo reflects our teachings of Honor, Duty, Discipline, Responsibility, and Respect. The yin and yang represent the opposites we face in life while the pathway in the middle represents balance that is needed in all things, the Torri gate is the destination of completion of our character, our ultimate goal.

On March 16th, The Dojo martial arts academy sent six competitors to a tournament in Campbell, CA. This tournament, known as the Mokomoko, features competition in areas of stick fighting, knife fighting, sumo, karate point fighting, Jujitsu Kata, and mixed martial arts grappling. Overall the tournament drew more than 250 competitors. We had some students competing in both sumo and grappling sections, while others only competed in grappling. All total The Dojo walked away with eight medals including four first place finishes, four second place finishes, and a fourth place finish. We are extremely proud of our students and their achievements; for example, the student who placed forth agreed to challenge a weight division well above her weight- she did an amazing job and took fourth place. The participating students are as follows;
- Oliver Litchfield, First place in grappling, second place in sumo (Greenville)
- Jackson Brenzovich, Second place on both sumo and grappling (Quincy)
- Jesse McLain, First place in grappling, second place in sumo (Greenville)
- August Polzak, first place in grappling (Quincy)
- Darrell Thompson, First place in grappling (Oroville)
- Amory Thompson, Forth place in grappling (Oroville)
Great job Oroville!
