The Kids Judo program at the University of New South Wales commenced in 1996 with 2 classes a week. We now have 34 classes a week in six age groups. Kids love coming to our judo classes where they have fun developing their skills and get a good dose of exercise at the same time. This is also a very successful competitive program teaching effective competition judo, having turned out many junior national champions, medalists and international competitors.

Mini Kids Judo 3 – 4 years

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

  • Safe falling
  • Jumping
  • Balance
  • Contact awareness
  • Developing concentration and self confidence in a games structured environment

Games are developed to create the awareness of the desired skills of Judo with lots of fun and laughter.

5 – 6 years

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 – 8 years

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 – 10 years

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

11 – 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.
