Come and HAVE A GO @ JUDO !


This is a perfect opportunity for our members to have a go at entry-level competition Judo at our good friends at SouthWest Judo Academy. You’re all strongly encouraged to register.

Have a Go @ Judo !

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


05:00 -06.00pm

Our coaches bring you a wealth of Judo knowledge gained over decades of dedicated Judo practise around the world.

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 a 4th Dan Black Belt, as well as 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.

Senior coaches Patrick and Owen, both 1st Dan black belts, have represented WA and Australia at numerous national and inter-national championships, all the way up to multiple Cadet & Junior Oceania and World Championships.

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

Owen is in the process of finalising his Personal Training certificates which will no doubt benefit him in his personal training efforts and aspirations to compete at the next Commonwealth Games and Olympics.
