Beginner-friendly judo classes for children
WELCOME TO YARRA JUDO!
My name is Neel and I’m your coach at Yarra Judo. I hope you’ll enjoy getting to know me on the “Your Coach” page and find out what Judo has meant to me in my life.
Yarra Judo opened in 2013 at Plenty Valley International Montessori School on Aquaduct Road, St Helena and has since relocated to Holy Trinity Primary School, 94 Weidlich Road in Eltham North.
My aim is for children to have lots of fun, while developing and enhancing the foundation skills for judo such as coordination, spatial orientation, balance, agility and contact awareness.
The judokas build muscle strength, learn how to fall safely and leverage body manoeuvres to gain control over an opponent without having to rely on brute strength or force.
They also learn the prescribed set of judo techniques that form part of the grading syllabus of the Judo Federation of Australia.
At the same time, Judo provides a strong means for building character and confidence and learning essential skills for living a fulfilling life.
The children learn self-discipline, self-control, respect for themselves and others, patience and leadership skills.
We’ve been with Yarra Judo for 3 year and our son loves all the skills he’s learnt in that time. Neel is a great teacher who I’d definitely recommend.
My son has been going to Yarra Judo for a few years now and very much enjoy the classes. The lessons are in age appropriate groups. Besides the judo techniques, children get trained on all aspects of judo, including respect, resilience and diligence.
Fun and inspirational judo for judoka of all ages.
