Judo is one of the world’s most widely practiced Olympic and Paralympics sports and showcases breathtaking throws (tachi-waza), sublime ground fighting techniques (ne-waza) as competitors (judoka) illustrate why they’re among the best conditioned athletes in the world.
The sport is an ideal form of physical exercise for all ages, males and females. Australia boasts a flourishing roster of visually impaired and special needs judoka.
Judo serves as a great cardiovascular workout, which improves stamina, general health and overall fitness. Physical strength is also improved as a direct result of trying to control and dictate the movement of the opponent and as well as enhanced power. For the same reasons balance, flexibility and posture of a player will also be enhanced. Physical co-ordination can be seen to develop dramatically from participation in judo and reflexes are also improved together with mental reaction time.
Australian Judo has a highly-motivating and rewarding non-competitive grading scheme which ensures you receive expert tuition without being required to take part in competitions although there are events for all levels of judoka from novices to veteran black belts.
Judo’s motto is ‘Judo for All’ as the sport can be practiced by all ages.
Official weight categories exist for both Junior & Senior judo players for those who choose to enter competitions.
