This is Cornell Judo’s official website.  Cornell Judo is one of the country’s oldest clubs, dating back over 40 years.  We are located in Friedman Wrestling Center on the Cornell University campus in Ithaca, NY.  We are the only judo school in the Ithaca, NY area and have students come from as far away as Binghamton and Syracuse.

Join Us

We welcome people to join our club and learn judo with us. Members of the community are welcome.  We do allow children to participate, but because we do not have a separate class, we ask that parents come along to supervise and/or participate along with their children.

We will ask you to sign a liability waiver and join the United States Judo Association, which provides us (and you) with additional insurance coverage.  We also collect dues occasionally to help pay for tournament entry fees, and cover guest instructor expenses.  If you have additional questions, contact John Palmore, the club President at jap436 (at) cornell (dot) edu.
