Welcome to the Chicago Budôkai

Thank you for your interest.

We are a group of students dedicated to study of the Martial Arts and Ways of Japan.
Primary instruction is in Kenjutsu, and Aikijutsu.
Our curriculum also includes the study of related aspects of traditional Japanese art and culture.

The Chicago Budôkai is part of a larger network of independent dôjô, united by the arts we study.
Established in 1981, on Chicago's near north side, we offer classes in Woodridge Illinois, Channahon Illinois, and Stoughton Wisconsin.
Our network of dôjô across North & Central America, began in the late 1960s with the San Diego Budôkai.
