Judo, a modern martial art founded in ancient Japanese traditions, emphasises both physical prowess and mental discipline. Judo has also been used as the foundation of other popular styles of martial arts such as Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) and  Sambo. Founded by Jigoro Kano in 1882, Judo translates to "the gentle way," reflecting its focus on leverage, balance, and technique rather than brute strength. Its students learn to use an opponent's force against them, mastering throws, pins, and submission holds.


Beyond self-defence, Judo promotes values such as respect, humility, and perseverance, making it a holistic practice for both body and mind. For this reason, Judo students also build confidence and self-esteem, alongside discipline and self-control.


Our Judo program is taught to both adults and children, aged 4+ years, with separate classes for different age groups to allow classes to be tailored more specifically to students' competency levels. Join in and give Judo a go to develop strength, agility, and confidence while embracing the rich philosophy of this timeless martial art.
