Reasons Why You Should Join our Judo Club

The Judo Club is back for a new season, and we’re welcoming more new students than ever! From young beginners to seasoned practitioners working toward the next level in their studies, our judo club family is growing bigger and bigger. So if you have a free evening in the week and are looking for a way to get fit, make friends and become part of globally recognised, highly-valued martial art, you should consider joining us!

Our head instructor Kathy Sato proudly talks about the benefits of joining our particular Judo Club. “We are a well-established community whose oldest members have been part of it for nearly ten years. This provides a wide range in experience where more advanced students can help guide newer ones. We all know each other very well and act like a family. The Judo Club is also proud to be a part of the wider martial arts network. This way we help train interested individuals for tournaments. Our studies are focused on discipline, fitness, reflex conditioning and simply keeping a valuable martial art alive.”

The Judo Club has produced a number of national and regional tournament winners in the last fifteen years, of different cultures and genders showing just how inclusive the Judo Club is and how effective their practices are. Kenji, a 3rd Kyu member, says that the Judo Club is very welcoming and supporting. “I used be really shy and quiet,” Kenji says. “Judo helped me become a little more confident and assertive. That’s the best thing about joining the club for me!”

The Judo Club is a well-known and highly respected part of the local community. Located just behind the major shopping center, almost everyone in the area knows where to find it and even who might be involved. It has close ties to the karate and wing chun clubs in neighbouring suburbs, and sometimes all three organisations get together for barbecue, games and drinks.

Shout Out To Storage Perth WA!

Hey all. We hardly update our site. Pretty much because people rather look up our site in order to contact us and join our judo club, rather than sitting around online browsing our site. Hahaha, we don’t mind, in fact we rather people to be active than not. But when we do publish a post, it is mostly to praise people in our community who helped us out.

The last time we published a post, we told the story about how our place got broken into. This time we wanted to give a shout out to a storage company here in Perth called Storage Perth WA who gave us a community discount to store our gear in their storage facility during our three week renovation. The owner Shannan, should be named and praised like he deserved to be!

Shannan said he was happy to help out because of his passion in keeping kids active, in particular martial arts. He gave us a “community rate discount”, rather than a full commercial rate. As the discount was very generous, we managed to absorb the cost; rather than passing it on to our members.

We’ve told Shannan that if he ever needed a favour from us in the future, then he’s got our number!

It is a good example of Perth local businesses helping one another. We needed help and Storage Perth WA delivered!

Some members of ours actually gladly offered their  home as storage space. But we had to kindly refuse the offer, simply because we didn’t want to inconvenience anybody. Although we really needed the help, we didn’t want to pass on the burden to others. Sure, we wanted to save some cash, but we won’t trouble people for it.. especially our members! Besides we had lots of stuff to store, so it was only logical to seek help from a storage facility; whose specialty is to.. well.. store stuff away!

Here’s a photo we took of the awesome storage facility we were privileged to get access to:

Once again, many many thanks to Shannan and the gang!
