At Bushido, we understand the growing demand for MMA training. MMA has produced some very talented fighters and will continue to be one of the most prefered method of training for arena fighters for some time. However, our style of training may differ from others. Mixing the experience and talent of our instructors, our Jujistu class gives the same type of training as other MMA classes. Students will learn a combination of Judo ground techniques and Jujitsu striking/joint locks that compliment each other for the ultimate combat experience.

Bushido Jujistu Vs. MMA

The main thing that sets our training apart from other MMA classes is that we keep our Jujitsu training in a Marital Arts atmosphere. We will continue to encourage mutual respect and the virtues taught in traditional martial arts. Our training is fun, informative and effective.

Safety First

Safety is our number one priority. Although our Jujitsu class is a contact class, we have our students practice with Head protection, hand protection and shin/foot protection. As in any contact sport, there is risk of injury, however we take necessary precautions to make sure that our classes are an enjoyable experience.

  • "In an age where commercialism seems to rule in the Martial Arts space and the true values of the Martial Arts are getting blurred Bushido Judo School holds true to the age old traditions of Honor, Respect and Discipline."

  • "Bushido Judo School has changed my life not only as a competitive athletes point of view but as an overall person. I have come to understand my self and gain much knowledge on how to control myself. Bushido's instructors are very caring and not only willing to help with judo but in all aspects of everyday life. Bushido isn't just a school it becomes your family."

    -Chris Elias
  • There's a few good places in Raleigh for martial arts, but I travel 40 mins to Bushido in Durham, because they're a competitive Judo club with the perfect balance of play-rough practice and fun-loving attitude.

  • For the past two years, my six year old son had been asking to take martial arts classes. Being new to the area, we began visiting different dojos. A friend recommended that we visit Bushido. From the moment I met Sensei Stokes I was impressed with his interactions with the children in the class. My son joined, and a week later, I joined as well. The instructors and fellow students are exceptionally helpful. My son and I both enjoy the classes immensely, and my younger daughter now wants to join us.
