Judo Classes

The Judokan offers weekly judo classes Mondays & Wednesdays at 6:30pm at our dojo in Groote Schuur Observatory, Cape Town.

A normal class will have 20-30 people attending training, with at least two experienced black belt coaches on the mat providing instruction.

New club members are always welcome no matter whether you are a beginner; a seasoned competitor; or just visiting Cape Town.

Our experienced coaching team provide the full range of training, from beginner level through to competition class for our club members who compete on a national level. At our Groote Schuur dojo we have a dedicated space with the best possible facilities which include two full size judo olympic mats, numerous crash mats, and a sprung floor.

A 90 minute judo training session normally consists of a thorough warm-up, technique instruction to refine and learn new techniques, and finally randori (sparring). We focus both on standing and groundwork techniques.

Fees are kept as low as possible, and are currently R180/month. Your first two training sessions at the Judokan are free of charge and you will need a judo gi (judo suit) to participate. Gi’s can be purchased from the Judokan for R240.
