Caulfield Judo Centre

Judo is a long established Japanese sport and an Olympic sport since the 1964 Tokyo games.
The word ‘Judo’ translated from Japanese literally means ‘The Gentle Way’ (  柔道 ). 

Judo was originally created in Japan in 1882 by Dr Jigoro Kano (嘉納治五郎) as a physical, mental and moral exercise. Described as a modern martial art which later evolved into a combat and Olympic sport.

Popular for its competitive element, whereby the objective is to throw or takedown an opponent to the ground, then immobilize or subdue the opponent with a holdown, or even force an opponent to submit with a joint lock or a choke. 
Training in Judo offers a unique physical and mental workout that improves your strength, balance, co-ordination & self-confidence.
Included in the training are various throwing techniques, hold down techniques, arm & joint locks, & choking techniques for seniors. The syllabus is geared toward each age group as a child or senior person achieves competency in the prior requirements.
One of the unique abilities of Judo is the ability for a smaller person to overcome a larger and stronger opponent with the use of technique and co-ordination.  
At Caulfield Judo Centre you will learn the martial art and sport of Judo in a safe and controlled environment. We’re officially recognized by and affiliated with Judo Victoria & Judo Australia so you will be graded under the national governing body. These grades are then recognized all over the world and this is important if you ever want to compete on either a state, national or international level.
Our instructors have many years of experience and are carefully selected to provide only the highest levels of training available in this dynamic sport.
