What Japanese word is a school for training in martial arts like Judo or Karate?

Unless you're abridging the question, I can't 100% fault them there. It's not a name but a type.

No comments on Monday’s contestant whose teammates both blew their first questions so Tyson looked like dead meat but he answered 7 in a row correctly. They were pretty easy questions but still, he was impressive.
