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!

Life Lessons from a Great Trainer

08-10-2014

My name is Ben Arnot, I have known Master Tom Adam for six years now and have trained in Hapkido both with him, and under his instruction. I have found him to be skilled, knowledgeable, patient, supportive and motivational. I have no hesitation recommending Master Tom to anybody who is interested in improving their lives through Martial Arts training. Had he not moved to Canberra, my son would be training in his Kid's Classes right now.

Recommend

08-10-2014

My son has been going here for over 2 years and has learned so much for the teacher Tom. Most of all he has learned self respect and to respect others, and to always try. My son loves going to Hapkido

Little Tigers

Great atmosphere and friendly people

They really have their students best interests at heart, my son was having difficulty and following the encouragement of the instructors he is now having a ball and cant wait to go to class, we are seeing the benefits too!

Persistance is Key

13-06-2016

My son started at Choi Kwang Do about 4 months ago. When he started he was nervous and didn't want to participate in the class. The staff acknowledged this and each lesson worked along side him to make him feel more comfortable and accepted . After a few weeks of persistence he now loves attending classes and is happy to participate in what is expected of him in class.

Brilliant Place to Train and learn

26-02-2016

I have trained at ATI Martial Arts for about 5 years. The instructors, team and atmosphere at ATI is extremely supportive. You are provided with a safe environment and numerous opportunities to learn and grow as an individual. I cannot thank the directors enough for the self confidence and respect I have gained through my training.

Excellent shcool

26-02-2016

My son trains there and it has help his motor skills and he always looks forward to going to training.

Fantastic place and people

26-02-2016

I put my son into the ATI School in Malaga to help him come out of his shell and give him some confidence. It helped him so much, I then joined the same club! Was the best thing I did for myself and my son. The Instructors are friendly and helpful in all areas of Martial Arts, the school teaches their classes grouped into ages instead of a giant class were I see young kids get lost in other clubs. Great people ! Great place! Highly recommend for parents to contact them for their children! I can honestly say I have nothing bad to say about them!

great martial arts school

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.

My son and I 37 and 7 joined the dojo last year. It is a great way of getting fit and spending time with my son outside of my stressful job which is forgotten when I get to classes! The Sensai is a great teacher who makes the classes tough but fun and extremely good value for money with additional free lessons and training where needed. As a bonus to feeling fitter than I have in a long time, since we started 5 months ago I lost 10 kilos and confidence improved. Thanks Sensai!
