Welcome To Our School

Founded in 1979, Pacific Rim is internationally recognized as a model for developing successful competitors and exceptional people.

With a deep respect for traditional martial arts, Pacific Rim strives to create meaningful relationships with our students, while passing on the art of self-defense and self-reliance.  Our philosophy of respect, discipline, courage and consistency is the template for developing great people.

As expressed by the characters ZEN EI KAN, everything we do is dedicated to fostering an environment where each student is challenged to reach their fullest potential, while contributing to the development of others through the principle of mutual welfare and benefit.

Styles We Teach

At Pacific Rim, we teach five distinct yet complimentary modern martial arts; Judo, Jujutsu, Aikido, Hapkido and TaeKwonDo.  While some of our students specialize in one art, most enjoy training in each of the arts to enrich their experience.

Meet Our Head Instructor

With 35 years experience on the mat and advanced black belts in five different arts, learn more about his approach to developing great martial artists and people.

Jigoro Kano taught us that through Judo each person can develop a strong character. At Pacific Rim, students are committed to becoming true judoka, and I could truly feel their dedication to training and making deep friendships through mutual prosperity.

Mr. Yasuyuki Muneta

2003 & 2007 World Champion

Michael Martyn has a tremendous passion for martial arts that led him to Japan to learn the true meaning of Judo and developing people through practice. He is showing us what true budo looks like.

Mr. Shintaro Nakano

Former Japan National Team Member

Pacific Rim is a great dojo with many tatami, world-class equipment and a beautiful building.  Students practice hard with respect and seriousness and I could see their love for learning Judo. I can’t wait to return and teach at Pacific Rim again.

Mr. Changrim An

2015 & 2017 World Bronze Medallist

Mike Martyn has a Japanese soul. I have met many instructors from around the world, but he is different. He understands Kano’s vision for judo and is a true judoka. I am happy to know him.

Mrs. Noriko Kitada

At Pacific Rim you have a chance to learn martial arts from a very diligent and sincere instructor. In all my travels, I have never seen such a great and beautiful dojo and my dream is to one day own such a wonderful dojo. I highly recommend Pacific Rim!

Mr. Koji Komuro

The students at Pacific Rim are respectful, dedicated, and committed to learning. They would be positive role models for our own students and are welcome to train with us at Teikyo University anytime.
