Kokoro Judo Coaching Timetable
Frequently Asked Questions
I have never done any Martial Arts or judo before. Do you have a beginner’s class?
Yes! Beginners are most welcome. We run a 3 week ‘come and try’ judo program to give you a taste of what judo is all about before deciding on joining in regular training. This program covers basic throwing actions, submission techniques and ground fighting. Special emphasis is placed on the skill of falling safely. There are no egos at Kokoro Judo Coaching. You will be partnered with people appropriately.
What do I wear?
On your trial session you wear comfortable workout type clothes. We do have uniforms you can borrow while you try out the classes and we have a variety of Fuji and Adidas judo gi’s for sale.
At what age should I start my child in Judo?
We have special classes on Saturday mornings for preschoolers aged 3-5 years
Can I chop and change classes?
Yes you can certainly do that. We are a flexible school and understand the time constraints faced due to work and family life
Do the classes run through school holidays?
Yes, judo is year round sport that is not reliant on the weather so rain, hail or shine we do judo!
We do take a break over the Christmas Period but other than that, classes run each week.
Do I have to be fit to do judo?
Most people start the same way, looking for a way to increase fitness that is more interesting than the gym. Judo is like a full body workout. You don’t have to be fit to start; your fitness will improve with your commitment to judo training.
How often should I train?
Students find that training twice a week develops good results and helps retain the techniques learnt. More training gets you better quicker so the question is how good or how fit do you want to be?
How do the gradings work?
We are a Judo Federation of Australia affiliated club and we have two gradings per year in June and November for the kids who can take their first grading from 6 years of age. Adults grade when they are ready.
Can I do a make-up class if I miss a class?
Yes we do offer makeup classes so feel free to come into the next available class to catch-up
