Judo for Teens

teensOur Judo for Teens class is for designed to teach self defence techniques and the sport of Judo while becoming fit, strong and healthy.

This class is a great way to develop friendships, have fun and increase your self-confidence which will decrease your chance of become a victim of bullying. OurĀ Judo for TeensĀ Program teaches basic Judo throws, takedowns, counter attacks and positioning skills in a fun, dynamic way that appeals to all teenagers.

These classes focus on developing important skills such:
– spatial awareness
– full body co-ordination
– rolling
– strength and fitness
– flexibility
– and more.

We also go one step further. We aren’t only interested in developing physical attributes, but also the mental as well. Our classes contain problem solving activities and team building games to ensure your children are developing skills for life. Throughout the term you will find that you child holds their head a little higher simply due to the confidence they get from the environment we have during classes.

Will my child get hurt? Is it safe?

Safety is always our number one priority, and we do everything possible to minimize risks and ensure that judo is practiced safely. Although you risk injury anytime you do something active, in our experience, we see far fewer injuries in our classes than in other kids activities (AFL, soccer, Rugby Union, Rugby league and even Netball). All lessons are done on soft mats, and we teach your child how to fall safely to ensure they don’t hurt themselves in our classes, as well as in other sports.

How often do we need to come to class and when are your classes?

We currently have options for kids classes for once a week or twice a week, so you can choose what works best for your child’s lifestyle.

Can we try it before we sign up?

We always start with one free trial pass. It’s really important not only for you to be able to make sure our program will be beneficial, but for us to be sure we can appropriately meet your goals as parents. So come along to your free lesson, ask questions, and watch your child have a blast!

My child isn’t very athletic, is that ok?

Of course it is! Your child doesn’t need to be good to start, but they need to start to be good! Judo is a great place to start, as kids will develop coordination, skills and spacial awareness that will translate over to other sports.
