After working closely together with Judo Western Australia and the Fremantle PCYC to ensure a safe return to sport, we’re delighted to be able to say that our classes have resumed for Term 3 – 2020.

This has resulted in a minor change in our class schedule with the Tuesday senior class now starting at 6:10pm.

Our members have been informed and as always we welcome new members to register for a Free Trial class. You’ve been kept indoors and out of sport for too long, come and join us. Come and HAVE A GO @ JUDO !

About us

Judo Ryu WA was founded in early 2004 to provide Judo training to children aged 5.5yo and over from the Fremantle PCYC in Hilton. Classes were initially only for children, but this was soon followed by additional classes catering for all age groups, and all levels.

Our club is a continuation of our coach Robert’s training and coaching effort in The Netherlands for many years under the umbrella of Judo Promotion Twente, a near 1,000 member, multi-location, yet regional club delivering grass-roots as well as high-performance Judo classes.

Judo Ryu WA is a proud member of Judo Western Australia and thereby affiliated with Judo Australia, the Australian Olympic body.

Continued training at Judo Ryu WA requires you to be a member of Judo Western Australia.     Join here

Check our current training location and times for more information and be sure to register for a FREE trial class.

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:

  • Learn how to fall safely
  • Can be practised by all ages (5+)
  • Olympic Sport since 1964
  • Improves coordination
  • Increases Mobility / Flexibility
  • Weight Loss / Management
  • Speed, Strength, Agility & Power Development
  • Improves self-confidence
  • and much more...

Head coach Robert trained and coached in The Netherlands before establishing our current club Judo Ryu WA here in Australia back in 2004. Robert is an International Referee with the International Judo Federation (IJF) and an IJF certified Judo Instructor currently working at Murdoch University as a Lecturer/Tutor in the Murdoch Business School.

Coaches Patrick and Owen have represented WA and Australia at numerous national and inter-national championships, all the way up to the Cadet & Junior World Championships.

Patrick is currently studying Sports Science while focusing on and training for the 2022 Commonwealth Games.

Owen is dedicated to obtaining his Personal Training certificates which will no doubt benefit him in his personal training efforts and aspirations to compete at the next Olympics.

And Coach Michael no longer looks THAT young….
