Judo is started by Jigoro Kano Sensei in 1882 and has now become a widely practised sport all over the world. Judo (柔道), which means 'the gentle way' in Japanese, focuses on using minimum effort to bring down opponents larger and stronger than oneself. Without kicks and punches, Judo consists of tachiwaza (standing techniques) and newaza (groundwork), which can be loosely associated with throws and pin-downs respectively.

Maybe you’re still slightly worried about the requirements for the sport. Will you be too heavy? Too light? Not strong enough? No experience? Fret not! We have weight categories from under 48kg all the way to above 100kg! So, you will be fighting people of your own size. Furthermore, we train together with the Year 1-4 Judo team so there’s a large range of skill levels, from total beginners (just like you) to cool SENIORS (LIKE US and you in future).
