Register your school for a complimentary quote and explore government grant options, no obligations.

Our in-school Judo programme is based on the Judo Australia Judo4Kids programme and delivered through the Australia SportingSchools framework.

We teach Judo in an active, fun and safe manner. Judokas (players) are taught a variety of techniques, while at the same time learning to respect and ‘care’ for each other. This is based on our principle that ‘Judo is Duo’, meaning that it takes two to practise Judo. In other words, you should look after each other, as you can not play Judo on your own.

Benefits of Judo include:


05:00 – 06:00pm
