"After many years of trying different sports for my son and daughter, I was happy to find International Judo Center. Besides all the obvious physical benefits of judo, my children have developed the following character traits: focus, resiliency, respect, persistence, and humility. There has never been a day where either one has said they didn't want to go to judo. Also, this judo school is more than a business, it is a family. Sensei Saro is an accomplished individual, universally loved and respected by the children. I invite anyone to give our dojo a try...you'll never look back!"

"Saro is one of the most professional,dedicated, and disciplined people I know! He has an amazing approach to his students and people in general! I am so excited to have a place like International Judo Center!"
"Saro has a great background in competing, training, and refereeing. His knowledge is only enriched by his love for the sport of Judo. He runs his club with discipline and purpose, and his ability to connect with kids of all ages is something that makes him a very unique coach. I highly recommend everyone bring their kid(s) to his club and experience everything the sport has to offer."

"It has truly been an honor to be a part of this amazing JUDO family for the last five years! JUDO has changed my son's life in more ways than one. It has turned him into a respectful, responsible, humble, and empathetic young man. Sensei Saro is not only his coach but a true mentor who gives his heart and soul to each and every student!!! He cares so deeply for the children and always has their well being (physical, emotional, and academic) in mind. My family has been very blessed and IJC holds a special place in our hearts. As an educator I truly believe that JUDO not only builds better athletes but better people as well. I highly recommend IJC!"

"For many years I was looking for the perfect martial arts school for my son and I finally found it. It has been 5 years since my son was introduced to the martial art of Judo with Sensei Saro. Our experience with this school has been amazing. Judo has played a very positive role in my son's development physically, mentally and also morally. I have to confess that it has changed his life for the better. Sensei Saro has been the most dedicated, loving, and caring individual. He treats his students with the utmost respect and has high expectations for all of them. He believes in them and in their ability to do better (in and out of the dojo). As a parent I could not have asked for anything more. International Judo Center is an amazing place and I strongly recommend it for all children (boys and girls) during their developmental years."
"Brand new and clean judo center, caring and talented instructors. Highly recommend to keep children active. Saro is wonderful! Great for a wide age range."
"I showed up to my first class at the wrong time and only found Saro there. He offered me a quick work out so that my trip there wasnt in vain, which I of course took up. The workout was bried, but the impression that I from Saro was that not only does he knows his stuff, but is a great teacher as well. I'd highly recommend anyone pursuing judo seriously or taking up a martial art to at least try the trial classes here."
"Excellent instruction and a great supportive environment in which to learn self mastery and healthy, honorable competition."
"Amazing Judo school!
Expert coaching for authentic judo experience."
