Dear Cahill's Family,

We want to thank you for your continued support and for those of you who are comfortable, for returning to class. As many of you know, COVID-19 has impacted individuals, families, businesses, schools, and the dojo in ways we didn’t expect.

During Covid, Cahill’s Judo Academy has not been able to make full rent payments. We realize many of you may be experiencing hardship during this time and are asking, if you are able, to support the dojo with donations so that there will be a Cahill’s to return to post COVID.  Donations will be used to cover rent and utilities.

Coach Cahill has built a community centered on judo. Judoka of all ages come here to train and we hope that Cahill’s will be here after the pandemic to continue to serve the community. 

Please view this video as a reminder of what Coach Cahill means to all of us. 

Any amount will help the dojo survive and we are asking you to help support a cause that gives back to the next generation.

Cahill’s Judo Academy is now registered as a nonprofit 501c3 “In support of Judo” so that your donations are tax deductible and will qualify for corporate company matching.

Ask your company to match your donation.
