About us

Judo Ryu WA was founded in early 2004 to provide Judo training to children aged 5.5 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.

Judo Ryu WA is a proud member of Judo Australia.

Check our current training location and times for more information.


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 cannot 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
  • Improve coordination
  • Increase Mobility / Flexibility
  • Weight Loss/ Management (For seniors)
  • Speed, Strength, Agility & Power Development
  • Improves self-confidence
  • and... Judo features No Kicks, No Punches!!
