To celebrate today’s International Women’s Day, Yuki Judo is organising an Open Session on Wednesday 24 March 6:15pm exclusively for women that want to get active whatever their age, size, background, gender identity or ability.
Yuki Judo is a proud supporter of This Girl Can VIC initiative to encourage all women and girls across Victoria to get active and we are organising this event as part of This Girl Can Week.
It’s going to be a fun class suitable for all fitness levels to exercise with Judo inspired movements.
Contact us or go to our Facebook page event to confirm your assistance, since there is a limited number of persons per session. But don’t worry, if the session gets booked out, we are going to open another one so every woman can have the opportunity.
If you can only attend a morning class, send us a message with your EOI. If we gather enough people, we might have the chance to do a morning session on Monday 22/3!
Last week Yuki Judo had its last class of 2020. No doubt it was a challenging year for everybody but in spite of that, we’ve kept training via our videos and online classes.
Happily, at the end of November we managed to come back to our Dojo and resume our classes sticking to our COVID management plan and enjoying training Judo together again.
Yuki, the name of our Dojo, means Courage in Japanese and it’s one of the Judo core values. Judo is a really difficult martial art, it takes time and dedication to make progress and many times is scary and challenging.
I wanted to share these two videos I’ve prepared for our brave Judokas showing what we do in every class.
Looking forward to resuming our classes next year, I wish you all a great 2021!
A few weeks after we suspended the classes due to the COVID-19 pandemic, I started recording free video classes for the young judokas in our kids class and they are available for any other kid that wants to give it a go.
Please, don’t expect perfect ‘Instagram’ quality videos, this is more about Judo. The classes are recorded so they can be followed standing in front of a TV, laptop or mobile phone with minimal space required to do the exercises.
I’m uploading a new class every approximately 2 weeks and there is a section where they can pick the individual exercises in case they want to work in something in particular.
Please stay safe in this difficult times and I hope we all can go back to our Dojos soon.
Yuki Judo was at Strathmore North Primary School last week, running a Judo workshop for kids from year 3 to 6.
experience and wonderful kids!
As part of
the school’s Japanese program, the kids received from Yuki Judo a Japanese
vocabulary list and learned about the history of Judo, its principles, Judo
etiquette and what we do in a regular Judo practice.
I’ve recently participated in the Australian Kodokan Judo Association National Championships 2019 at Cairns, QLD in both, Kata and Shiai (fights).
In the Kata tournament, I teamed up with Damon Ellis, from Zenyo Judo. Close to the competition, my original partner was unable to participate, so Damon kindly accepted to replaced him at the last minute.
