Mini Kids Judo for 3 to 4 year olds

These classes develop the core skills of movement with a leaning towards basic Judo movements:

  • safe falling
  • jumping
  • balance
  • contact awareness, as well as
  • developing concentration and self confidence in a games structured environment.

5 to 6 year olds

These classes develop the core skills of Judo:

  • safe falling
  • balance
  • contact awareness.

The classes are conducted in a games environment where the games are structured to create awareness of the desired skill. Big Ball Sumo, Pillow fights and Crash Mat battles are just some of the fun games the children play.

7 to 8 year olds

These classes develop specific Judo skills but with a high “game” element. Safe falling skills are more developed to increase the ability to relax during the fall. Gradings commence in this age group.

9 to 10 year olds

These classes develop throwing and groundwork techniques with games designed to challenge mentally and physically. Techniques taught are required for gradings.

11 to 14 years

These classes develop throws, groundwork techniques and overall body strength. Classes develop strategy with a focus on competition depending on individual player’s maturity.

Kids classes are conducted in two locations; at the club on High St, Kensington and Eastern Suburbs PCYC at 26A Bunnerong Rd, Daceyville (a 5 minute drive from UNSW).
