    My review of Newport Judo Club

    08-09-2015 by Barbara Robinson

    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!

    Answer from Newport Judo Club on 01-12-2016:
    Thanks Barb, Your dedication and commitment has made you and excellent Judoka

    Connection and community

    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.

    Thanks Andrew, Great Judoka's show themselves in their character.

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

    01-09-2015 by Shannon

    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!

    Answer from Newport Judo Club on 01-12-2016:
    Thanks It has been a great privilege to watch you grow in confidence and skill.

    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? Because it teaches respect. Something that is precious and often all too rare today. As well as all too often too absent from most sports.In most forms of Martial Arts the second things you are taught is how to kick, punch or grapple. But in Judo the second thing you learn is how to fall and how to get up from that fall. Know...

    I couldn't think of a better Dojo to send my kids to. Sensei is dedicated to bringing the best out of his students. His commitment and passion to teach karate is second to none and my kids are better off with his guidance and training.

    Great classes for all ages

    18-03-2016 by Julie Davenport

    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!

    Students experience

    16-03-2016 by Jason

    I was looking for a karate class recently, as I enjoyed my karate some years ago. I discovered this class for my 11yr old son and I to attend and have not regretted it. For me it was enjoyable and a good place to gain health and fitness. Besides this, I see a marked improvement in my son's confidence and attention span. We both have a good laugh every time as well (unexpectedly) and look forward to each class. There a great feeling of comradery and appreciation for one another. Though we finish the class physically exhausted, the next day we are fine and are stronger for it.

    I have been attending Krav Maga classes with Ash, Anna and the team on the Gold Coast for the last 2.5 years. I have rarely encountered such a welcoming, friendly and supportive team. The lessons are structured for both beginners and more experienced individuals alike. You can progress at your own pace and are always provided with fantastic mentoring and support from the team. The classes provide both technical and practical advice towards personal safety and the safety of others, whilst providing a great opportunity to keep fit. Ash, Anna and the team should be congratulated for providing such a rewarding training experience. I will certainly continue to keep attending their classes.

    Combat Karate Self Defence

    26-05-2014 by

    I was in Australia recently on holidays and had been told of Martin day Defense Courses. On a friend’s recommendation I decided to enroll in private lessons due to the course actually being closed for the Xmas break but Martin still gave me his time to learn basic defense skills knowing my interest and Martin’s enthusiasm to impart his knowledge to people. Martin also took into consideration my level of fitness and my age of 50+. I don’t move as I use to, no more a bull at a gate!! Given Iv no fighting or defense ability I found the training very controlled which enabled me to relax into the physical side of the training. Martin explained the processes and then the practical side developed along with the assistance of his team of trainers. In the short time I had to learn some practical defense abilities I must admit I enjoyed the short program and will endeavor to go back to do more when I’m next back in Australia. I learnt good practical defense moves in a limited time. A thoroughly enjoyable start to defense training, look forward to more training secessions to come and thanks to Martin and his team Kind Regards G. Davis

    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 by Beau Dalwood

    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.

    Answer from Takahashi-ha no Ryukyu - Shuri -Te Karate-Do on 13-12-2016:
    Your comments are indeed most humbling, thank you. O'Connor Sensei

    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).

    Answer from Takahashi-ha no Ryukyu - Shuri -Te Karate-Do on 13-12-2016:
    Thankyou for your comments, to share the traditional teachings from Okinawa/Japan, we first must have students who wish to learn. It has been a pleasure to share and teach your children. Garry Sensei

    Positive Experience

    10-10-2013 by Tan Tryhorn

    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.

    Answer from Takahashi-ha no Ryukyu - Shuri -Te Karate-Do on 13-12-2016:
    Domo arigato ( thank you) for your kindness and expression, I am most humbled. Garry O'Connor Sensei
