Our kids Judo classes focus on developing your childs fundamental motor skills, increasing confidence while having a lot of fun. We guarantee that your children will come home happy, AND super tired.
Judo for Teens
Our teens program aims to help develop teamwork skills, increase confidence as well as increase strength and fitness. This class is a must for any shy teenager looking at developing their confidence and having fun at the same time.
Our Adult Judo program is designed for you to learn fundamental Judo techniques including a number of throws, escapes, joint locks and more! These techniques will increase self defence, core strength, balance and fitness.
Brazilian Jiujitsu is based around the fact that a smaller, weaker person can defend against a bigger, stronger assailant by using leverage and proper technique. This class is a great way to develop self defence as well as have great fun!
