About the Sakura Dojo

Sakura Dojo is a proud member of Judo Manitoba.

The Sakura Dojo focuses on training individuals in the technical aspects of competitive judo, recreational judo and traditional Kodokan Judo. Although we are a small club, individuals benefit from highly individualized and personalized instruction.

Sakura Dojo emphasizes a non-competitive environment for individuals to learn a fun and effective martial art.
