Our Classes

Classes focus on fun, movement-based activities that lead towards the judo fundamentals of break falling, judo hold-downs and throws.

These activities aim to build gross motor skills, strengthen core muscles and acclimatise children to the structure of a judo class in readiness for the 6 – 9 year old Junior Judo sessions.

This class focuses on fun-packed activities to develop fundamental skills, judo specific techniques, break falls and social skills. Coaches work with students to develop the life values of fair play, respect, friendship, responsibility and knowledge.

Junior Judo classes 10 years and older build on the fundamental skills that have been taught in the 6-9 year Junior Judo classes. Classes are fun and action-packed, with children progressing onto more complex judo techniques as they become increasingly proficient in the sport.

Safety is paramount in the Senior Beginner Judo class. Students learn the essential basics of ukemi (break falls – front, side, back and rolling) to ensure they do not get injured whilst being thrown.

Once ukemi has been mastered, they will progress to learning fundamental throwing techniques in addition to ground grappling techniques.

The advanced senior class is for students who have progressed from the beginner’s class or are competent with all aspects of judo.

Classes focus on refinement of technique, inclusive of combinations and counters. Free practice (randori) is emphasised to facilitate practical application of studied techniques.

Kata and technical grading classes will be held prior to club and state Dan gradings. Classes will focus on the correct technical aspects and presentation of techniques required to satisfy grading requirements.
