Covid-19 concerns

We will be closed due to the governor's executive order. 

If you haven’t heard, the governor has declared that all exercise classes and facilities close in response to covid-19 concerns. As of now, we are uncertain how long this executive order will remain in effect for, but we will be complying with the order and following events closely. We will be developing some supplemental content for our website and facebook page and will post some suggested links to view as well. So, if you’re not following us on facebook yet, now is the time. If you have any questions or concerns let us know, we are trying to come up with the best systems to keep both spirits and health up. We will keep posting on facebook, our website, and will try to keep everyone up to date via email as well. If you are uncertain whether we have the best email for you, please send a message with your best contact information to us via facebook messenger or to

About Snyder Dojo


Located in Kalamazoo, Michigan, Snyder Dojo builds a stronger person. The classes are among the safest available because of a fundamental focus on injury prevention. The first thing learned is how to fall without getting hurt. This is practiced in every class. Participants will develop stronger core strength because most techniques use rotational motion and twisting. Not only do you have to control your own body, but you have to control that of an opponent/partner. This will improve balance and strengthen support muscles. In addition to the physical aspect, our classes also build mental strength. Confidence comes from accomplishment and the ability to defend yourself. And yes, it's fun too.


Snyder Dojo offers top-quality Judo, MMA, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and Submission Grappling in a safe, friendly atmosphere. Training is available for all levels of interest. Snyder Dojo offers instruction for those seeking casual, family fun to the international competitor. Casual students will develop confidence, increase core strength, flexibility, and mobility. If you are looking for competition, Snyder Dojo will take you as far as you want to go.
