Classes are held whenever the YMCA is open, and are rarely canceled. The Y is closed on Labor Day, Christmas Day, and for the evening on Thanksgiving and Christmas eve. In addition, the Y closes for about a week each year late in the summer for maintenance.

Directions to the Orokawa Family Center Y in Towson From the Circle in Towson Center go south on York Rd. to Chesapeake Ave. Turn right (west) and proceed about 0.25 miles. The entrance to the YMCA parking lot is on the right. Watch for the ground-level YMCA sign. The Y can also be accessed from Allegheny Ave.
Location of the dojo in the Y The dojo (training hall) is in the Littauer Group Exercise Room.
Observing a class (as a prospective student, parent, or guest) Observers are welcome to watch what we do. Please send an e-mail to Scott Finley (for Sensei Klara) introducing yourself so we know to expect you. Our dojo does not have a seating section, so observers do need to be prepared to sit on the floor.
Trying a class Prospective students (at least 10 years old) are welcome to join a class to experience what we do. Please send an e-mail to Scott Finley (for Sensei Klara) introducing yourself so they know to expect you. Please dress appropriately in long, loose-fitting pants and a shirt that you're not too attached to. If you have a gi (uniform) please wear it, even if it's a different color or style than the white judo gi that we generally wear.
Registering for classes The YMCA charges lower rates for members than non-members. Members also receive discounts on other Y programs and have access to the fitness equipment and the pool. See the Y of Central Maryland web site for details and (for members) online registration. Non-members should register for classes at the YMCA front desk.
Sessions last about 8 weeks. The rates for a session (paid to the Y) are in the following table. Registered students are welcome to attend as many classes as they like (class now meets 2x per week) during the period of their registration.
|Youth member (10 - 17 years old)||$68.00|
|Youth non-member (10 - 18 years old)||$119.00|
