The EbiKids program is SouthWest Judo Academy’s most introductory judo class. Targeted towards the youngest of children, this class helps to develop a range of skills —not just applicable to judo — but which are necessary to the development of young children.
SouthWest Judo Academy’s Monstars program, like our EbiKids program, helps to develop a range of skills necessary to the development of young children but also introduces students to more judo specific skills.
SouthWest Judo Academy’s Juniors program focuses on developing students’ judo-specific skills. We encourage friendly competition between students to help foster resilience and camaraderie.
SouthWest Judo Academy’s Seniors program mirrors our Juniors’ in that it focuses on developing students’ judo-specific skills, however at a much faster pace. Friendly competition is also encouraged.
Designed specifically for special needs, our No Limits class introduces participants to the world of judo. Children will engage in basic tumbling exercises, learning how to practice judo safely, before being exposed to the basic standing and ground-work techniques of judo.
There are two principal ways of practicing Judo: kata and randori. At SouthWest Judo Academy, Randori, meaning “free practice” is integrated into each of our regular classes. We offer a specialised class for kata (translated literally as “form”). Through a formal system of prearranged exercise, students learn the principles of judo techniques.
SouthWest Judo Academy's Veterans class is open to those aged 30 and over. It is ideal for total beginners & experienced judoka alike.
With a focus on fitness and self-defence, SouthWest Judo Academy’s Women-Only class provides women with an opportunity to train solely with women in a safe and encouraging environment.
