General information

About Us
Welcome to the UniSA Judo Club! Boys and Girls all welcome.
Judo is a Japanese Budo (traditional martial art) and Olympic sport today.

Judo is known for its 68 throwing techniques (Tachi waza) but also includes 32 groundwork techniques (Katame waza), by using specialised 10 holds (Osaekomi waza), 10 arm locks (Kansetsu waza) along with 12 strangle techniques (Shime waza). Practicing Kata is a great venue to understand the system of the techniques and movements. We provide Kata exercise as well as Shiai. We cover these Katas include Nage no Kata, Katame no Kata, Ju no kata, Kime no Kata and Kodokan Goshinjutsu.

White belt (non graded), Yellow belt (5th Kyu), Orange belt (4th Kyu), Green belt (3rd Kyu), Blue Belt (2nd Kyu), Brown Belt (1st Kyu) and Black belt (Shodan). We regularly take Judo belt grading twice a year at the club but if you train more than 3 or 4 times a week, you might have an extra Belt grading. Train your mind, skills and body throughout Judo!
