Welcome to the Three Rivers Budōkai, Will, Kendall and Grundy County's exclusive venue for the study of classical Japanese martial traditions.
There are no children's classes here—we leave that to the local studios and rec-centers. The pursuit of perfection is one for adults, undertaken in the spiritually intense and self-disciplined atmosphere of a traditional dōjō.
In our dōjō we strive to perfect the techniques, arts, and strategies born of Japan's feudal samurai. The techniques forge the body and spirit. The arts cultivate an appreciation of quiet elegance. The strategies provide a limitless means to implement both in the present.
For us, learning a technique well enough to do it with proper form, speed, power, and without thinking, is a good beginning…
But that is all it is: a beginning.

Currently accepting applications from serious adults who never want to settle for AVERAGE again.
