My review of Newport Judo Club

08-09-2015

Hi, my name is Barbara. I've trained for many years at the Newport Club, and also previously at Richard's previous club, Moonee Valley Judo Club. I gained my Black Belt (First Dan), in 2012. I really enjoy training at Newport for quite a few reasons, but the main ones are are the relaxed family atmosphere combined with the traditions of Judo itself. Jigaro Kano, the great man who put Judo together, was a progressive and creative man. This is still very evident in Judo today. The general standard of Martial Arts in Australia is very high and safely conducted, but this is particularly true of Judo. Judo has also always welcomed women and children, both overseas and here in Australia. If you train at the Newport Judo, it does not matter if you are training mainly to keep fit or as a serious competitor. You will be catered for. Also, if you are female, there are a number of girls and women training at the moment. Judo also has a long and interesting history and is quite artistic. Come along and find out while getting fit!

Connection and community

02-09-2015

Newport Judo Club and the Head teacher Richard Roper are more than just Judo , Self defence and fitness. Judo teaches principles that are life changing. Richard is knows judo and also brings to life priciples of awareness of what is around you, exporing possibilities and options ( for example, using your voice to create safety and avoid phsysical risk) and understanding that one has to make choices and commit - A judo student learns many throws and techniques bringing choice but execution requires commitment and follow through. Newport judo and Richard have given my family a gift not just of judo and fitness but lessons in the 'judo way' that are a gem for life and business. Andrew Matthews/Chief Actuary/Medibank Private - For Better Health.

New to judo & was worried, but Newport Judo Club is great!

01-09-2015

I'm completely new to judo and martial arts in general, and before I started doing judo at Newport Judo Club my physical health was fairly poor, so I was nervous, thinking that after my first session I was going to walk away bruised and never wanting to get on the judo mat ever again! I needn't have worried at all - Richard and the club at Newport are a welcoming, diverse bunch and you soon feel part of the team. There is lots to be learned about Japanese judo and its traditions, but Richard is great at laying it out in a way that isn't too overwhelming, whilst giving you the tools to learn productively and be respectful to the traditions. You might be interested in judo from a self-defense standpoint. I certainly am - particularly as a young woman! - Richard has some great anecdotes and has often come over and shown me useful techniques where it's relevant. There is definitely a lot to learn, and Newport Judo Club has a range of people with different belts and in my experience everyone has something useful to teach me, and it's great that Richard encourages that kind of friendly environment. I'm (obviously) part of the Seniors class but I've shown up early for the Juniors by accident a few times, and the kids look like they're having a blast too so that's great!

What makes Judo so unique?

The first thing you learn in practically all Asian Martial Arts is how to bow - something that is foreign to most other activities in western life. Why is this important? Read this article to find out! Read more

Upwey Tae Kwon Do

14-06-2017

I train at Upwey Rhee TKD side by side with my 9 yo son. There's not a lot of sports where you can do this which is one of the things we both love about it - however it doesn't stop there. The people we train with are great, the instructors are great all combined with some excellent messaging about self control and respect. We're only just getting established in our training routine, however I already notice some great physical and mental benefits. One of the aims of the training is to get your brain and body working in sync with each other - it amazes me how much of a challenge this actually is - but I think I'm getting there. In conclusion, I can't recommend it highly enough and hopefully my son and I will both be training there for many years to come.

Traditional AND practical

How to raise brave kids - that understand FEAR

When confronted by someone or an unusual event we are often surprised by our body's reaction, often interpreted as 'Fear'. At a physiological level our body is dumped with adrenalin which makes our muscles ready to fight or flee from any perceived attack or stressful situation, that is our 'fight' or 'flight' instinct. These two primordial responses are most obvious in children who will run away or lash out when stressed. Read more

Something for Everyone

06-08-2016

My son has been training at the Mount Beauty Dojo for the past few years and I have watched him grow with respect and humility through learning a traditional martial art. He has developed self confidence and friendships through the school. I have also joined the class to continue my martial arts journey later in life. I consider myself to be very lucky to have an opportunity to learn from such an experienced teacher. it is also very rewarding to see the development of the all students in the class. I can highly recommend this Karate school.

extraordinary journey of heart and mind

06-10-2015

I have been studying Takahashi-ha no Ryuky Shuri-Te in the Mount Beauty area for over four years now. Training has brought upon immense and vital changes within myself that allows me to tackle the uncertainties of adulthood. The teachings of the way of traditional karate-do fosters more than just physical achievement, but also the skills and confidence to strive for educational and personal excellence. This traditional karate-do has not taught me how to fight or how to use violence without cause. Instead it has guided me on how not to fight and the self-esteem to not to give in to violence. However, it has expanded the know how and the courage for if a time did call upon for my own protection or the protection of someone else that i would be fully able and have the valour for self defence. A traditional art, like this one teaches the traditions and customs of the original cultures of Japan and Okinawa. I have learnt from traditional customs and manners to language and history. This art has changed my life immeasurably and I recommend it to anyone that is fully willing to put their whole heart into this art, who are willing to change for the better.

A Must!

06-10-2015

My 10 & 12yo children have attended Takahashi-ha no Ryūkyū - Shuri-Te Karate-Dosince since the beginning of the year. 10th Dan Hanshi O'Connor is gifted & patient teacher in the traditional martial arts forms. My daughter & son have gained confidence, respect & skills for lifetime & will continue to learn from his teachings. I strongly recommend this Karate-do training centre to anyone in the region (Adult or child).

Positive Experience

10-10-2013

I have been training in this soulful art for nearly 2 years now. For me, it has been an incredibly positive experience, and I have gained so much, both physically and emotionally in this short time. As a senior (over 18 yrs) I have the pleasure of training with the Juniors for the first hour of every class. I have watched our younger students grow also. Our classes encourage humility and respect whilst building confidence, courage and self awareness. Great skills to take into all other aspects of life. I can not recommend this school highly enough, and if you live near the Mt Beauty area, there is not a better gift you could give yourself or your child for life.

Spirit of First Beginning

I've been delighted at how Ben's flourished in class - it's good that he's doing well at the physical stuff, but I'm most pleased with the way he's learning to concentrate and practice. Sandra inspires a persistence in him that I've only seen him give to a couple of skills (mostly Lego!) :)

Excellent
