Welcome to the Akari Judo Club
Judo, translated as the "gentle way", is a martial art which teaches the use of balance, momentum, and timing to overcome your opponent. "Akari Judo" can mean either "Enlightened Judo" or "Effortless Judo", and those are both ideals that we strive towards, seeking to use the aggressor's own strength against them and prevail with minimum effort.

Chad Morrison: Chad has been practicing Judo since 1994 and has trained under many different instructors from around the world. He received his Nidan (2nd degree black belt) in 2010.

Akari Judo is is located at 6415 Jahnke Road, Richmond, Virginia, with the MMA Institute. Click here for directions. To get in touch, you can email us at sensei@akarijudo.com, or give Chad a ring at 804-677-4793. We look forward to hearing from you!
