Getting to Class

DC Judo meets at two different locations:

KENNEDY RECREATION

EDGEWOOD ARTS

TRAVEL TO KENNEDY RECREATION

Kennedy Recreation Center is located at 1401 7th St NW in DC’s Shaw/Mt Vernon neighborhood. Click here for Google Maps directions.

METRO
We are located on Seventh Street two blocks north of Mount Vernon Square Metro and three blocks south of the Shaw/Howard metro.

BUS
Kennedy Recreation Center is served by the Metrobus G2, 70, 71, and 79 lines as well as the Circulator. We are on Seventh between O St NW and P St NW.

CAPITAL BIKE SHARE
We are two blocks north of the Capital Bike Share location at Mt Vernon Square Metro and three blocks south of the location at Shaw/Howard Metro

CAR
Kennedy has parking on O St NW on the side of the Recreation Center Building.  You can map a route to us here.

USING THE RECREATION CENTER

Kennedy requires all visitors to sign in at the front desk. There is no charge for using the Recreation Center facility. Normal sportswear is expected so “no shirt, no shoes, no service.”

Our classes are normally located in the Gym. We set up mats a few minutes before 6 and pack up the mats at the end of class. Everyone is expected to pitch in unless injury or disability prevents helping. Occasionally we hold class in the multipurpose room when the gym is used for special events.

Kennedy provides limited changing room space for men and women. Lockers are not available, so bring something in which to hold your clothes and valuables during class.

TRAVELLING FROM OUT OF TOWN
If you plan to join us for a special event or tournament, DC Judo is easy to reach by air, rail, or bus. You can ride down from Baltimore, Philadelphia, or New York and catch a nap as a bonus!

AIR
Take the Yellow Line train from National Airport to Mt Vernon Square Metro. Walk two blocks north to Kennedy.

RAIL/INTERURBAN BUS
Amtrak, MARC, and VRE all serve Union Station where Greyhound and Peter Pan also terminate. From Union Station, you can ride the Metro Red Line to Gallery Place/Chinatown and transfer to the Yellow/Green towards Mt Vernon Square Station. Walk two blocks north to Kennedy.

TRAVEL TO EDGEWOOD ARTS

Edgewood Arts is located at 3415 8th St NE in DC’s Brookland neighborhood. Click here for Google Maps directions.

METRO
We are located on Eight Street NE (AKA Dance Place) one block south of the Brookland/CUA Metro (Red Line). Exit on the Catholic University side, make a U turn at the top of the steps, and take the Arts Walk to Edgewood. It is ok to stop and visit the art studios or the Historic Brookland Farmer’s Market – just don’t let that make you late for class!

BUS
Brookland Metro is on many Metrobus lines. Check wmata.com for details on which lines are closest for you. Take the bus to Brookland, exit the station on Monroe St, and walk over the bridge. Edgewood is at the foot of the Brookland Bridge.
