A normal class will have 15-30 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.


Your first training session at the Judokan are free of charge.
