    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.

    Answer from Newport Judo Club on 01-12-2016:
    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...

    Training here is soul lifting experience

    30-01-2014 by Steve Pavic

    I started at Ultimate martial arts academy just over 6 months ago to try gain some fitness after reaching almost 100kg in weight. Now I am 65kg, 38 years old and have never been more fit in my life. Not only does SiFu Henry help you gain fitness, He is one of the best martial artists in the world and an incredible teacher of many disciplines. I do Wing Chun and now both of my daughters are doing the little tigers class and are loving every minute of it. Every student there is a part of the family and are always made feel welcome. It has been a soul lifting experience and I have learnt so much in 6 months that I can’t wait to see how far I will come in the next 6 months. It is never too late to start learning self defence. Maybe it will change your life like it did mine.

    Love the school. Incredible Sifu, Incredible Results. Lost 36kg!

    30-01-2014 by Nat

    I started coming to the Ultimate Martial Arts Academy in Hallam after putting on a tremendous amount of weight (36kg) after having my 2nd Child. I was heavily overweight (got to a shocking 90kg) was seriously unfit, unhealthy and more importantly too unmotivated to make a change. Sifu Henry made me feel comfortable as did all of the guys at the school. Everyone was supportive, encouraging and friendly and I felt comfy coming to training in trackies and a t-shirt and working up a sweat. Within the first month i lost 7kg and then continued to have amazing results every month after that. I am now 55kg and well towards achieving my pre-baby weight in just 5 months. Its been an incredible journey, and one that i could never have done without the support and encouragement of SiFu Henry. If you need to loose weight, increase your fitness, strength and flexibility whilst also learning a unique and scientific martial art that will teach you self-defense, discipline, dexterity, and assist you in achieving your goals personally, mentally and physically then this is the place for you! You wont regret it.

    THIS SCHOOL... HERE...is UNLIKE every other martial arts school around!

    17-01-2014 by Kate

    I wanted to write a review to help people make informed decisions when researching which martial arts schools to study at in Sout East Melb because everyone wants to learn from the best, to be the best-its really as simple as that... but how does one know who is the best? And if the Master is really as good as he claims to be if the students don't say anything to confirm/deny that claim? I think I'll start by mentioning the most valuable aspects of SiFu Henry's tutelage and the unique "Applied" Wing Chun training techniques that actually differ and in my opinion are more superior when compared to the other various Wing Chun styles out there. That in itself is a HUGE advantage if you've decided that Wing Chun is the Martial Arts style for you. For me, personally, my training and experiences here are so much more than the mere listing of generic features and benefits that could so very easily be associated with every other other martial arts school around. That sweeping, non-exclusive message is certainly not the message that I want to convey here, because THIS SCHOOL... HERE...is UNLIKE every other martial arts school around! Here at the Martial Arts Academy, We're a Family. And I want to acknowledge how SiFu Henry becomes personally invested in the personal lives and goals of every student that puts on his uniform and thus becomes a part of HIS Kung Fu Family. That's what I think is important to him. And everyone that studies under SiFu knows, sees and feels this distinction when compared to other schools. And most of us have tried other styles of martial arts before. SiFu Henry is not only an exemplary teacher, but I know for him to be an honorable, respectful, understanding, patient and amazingly enough, a humble man despite all of his achievements. One can easily list SiFu's accomplishments as a world- class martial artist, ALLLLL DAY LOOONNGGG and make note of his world renowned martial art tournament fighting experience, his extensive work as a stunt double including his most recent role as Tony Leung's stunt double in The Grandmaster, his various published articles on Wing Chun in Wing Chun Illustrated, Blitz and other martial arts magazines, and also his recent appointment as Director of the International Applied Wing Chun Federation which strive to promote and preserve late Yip Mans Wing Chun Kung Fu principles, curriculum and training methods. That's just naming a few, but for some people thats all they need to hear and they are sold. It certainly says it all when you see that the whole Wing Chun/ Martial Arts Community recognize and hold his superior skills in such high regard. But Despite all of his impressive accomplishments, I still think that to him, the most important thing is his Kung Fu Family, the work he undertakes here at the school and his students continuous development and advancement in Wing Chun. I Hope this helps at least one person when choosing which martial arts school to go to in the Souh/East of Melbourne.

    The Ultimate Martial Arts Academy Hallam Melbourne- Proving to be The Ultimate Place to Gain Expert Unparalleled Tutelage in Wing Chun!

    29-05-2013 by SiFu Henry

    The amazing thing about SiFu Henry’s tutelage at the Ultimate Martial Arts Academy in Hallam is that despite the fact that every student there is at a different level technically he has the incredible ability to #1 remember where every student is at in his or her training at all times, but can motivate, educate and decipher how everyone learns and retains information psychologically, which ensures that every student is retaining all that they learn in class and thus always advancing in their training. Because he can train everyone individually regarding their preferences and learning styles, SiFu Henry becomes personally invested in the goals of every student and takes it upon himself to push you, encourage you and help you achieve those goals. He helps us understand how to respect our bodies, eat a well-balanced diet and maintain our health and bodies for maximum optimisation and also not to go and eat junk and undo all the hard work we’ve put in. He has taught us the importance of flexibility, dexterity and warming up your body before strenuously working out, learning to listen and apply instruction, learning the importance of repetition, restraint and hard work towards getting a strong foundation instead of getting carried away with eagerly wanting to learn the flashy moves, learning to work with partners and with other students in a team environment, learning the importance of determination , will-power and purpose by training in-between classes to better our techniques but to also propel us to achieving our goals in the long run. We’ve also learnt the importance of obedience, authority and discipline to follow through what you start and not give up when your overwhelmed, dead tired, your body is aching and in pain, or think it’s just too hard. Can you gain all those lessons in your current 40min gym work out? Doubt the treadmill is qualified to teach that much, nor your personal trainer for that instance. If you’re going to pay to get fit, instead of running around the block for free, wouldn’t you want to learn all those important life lessons while learning self-defence martial art or losing weight at the same time? Or more importantly wouldn’t you want your children to learn these life principles whilst learning the importance of fitness and movement instead of sitting in front of the TV, Computer, X-Box, PlayStation, I-pad or whatever other electronic gadget within their reach? Wing Chun is effective for both children and adults alike and for one payment a month, you can go to as many classes as you like during the week, instead of paying for every class separately, so it turns out to be really cost effective too. You don’t have to re-mortgage the house to train here so come and have a look at what classes The Ultimate Martial Arts Academy can offer for young children. It may just be the best thing you’ve ever done for yourself!

    02-09-2016 by Justin

    Raoma has helped build confidence within myself. When I first started I was shy, insecure and quite easily intimidated in public. Through the teachings and practice I have been able to overcome all the negatives I once thought of myself and I am happier and more positive than ever. Thanks Raoma

    The best martial arts community!

    02-09-2016 by Jess

    RAOMA is the very best martial arts community, it makes my family very happy since several years ago. Friendly, professional and inspiring teachers with very advanced teaching skills, at RAOMA you can actually improve your technique day by day. Just the best club to start martial arts as an absolute beginner and to progress as an advanced practitioner.

    Having done boxing and kickboxing for over a decade I had gone stale in my training. That was until I went to Raoma where I have been going now for over a year. Love it there and the instructors are excellent as well as patient. Totally recommend for all levels from novice to fighter.

    Upwey Tae Kwon Do

    14-06-2017 by Saul

    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.

    Answer from Upwey Tae Kwon Do and Self Defence on 16-06-2017:
    It is always pleasing to know that students are "getting it" and seeing the benefits, both for them as individuals but also as a family.

    Traditional AND practical

    14-06-2017 by Ying

    Amazing instructor and students at Upwey Taekwondo who make you feel right at home and are very welcoming and accommodating whether you are new to the arts or a returning student after a long break.

    Answer from Upwey Tae Kwon Do and Self Defence on 16-06-2017:
    A welcoming, family friendly atmosphere is one of our main goals. With a good environment students will learn more and more quickly. Thanks for the review.

    Great activity for kids and adults

    09-02-2016 by Jess Brown

    Tae kwon Do helps people to develop flexibility, strength and coordination in a fun, low-pressure way. Upwey Tae Kwon Do teachers are knowledgeable and patient. Well-worth the experience for kids and adults alike.

    Answer from Upwey Tae Kwon Do and Self Defence on 19-05-2016:
    Besides the physical benefits of exercise, by training together often as a family, both children and adults learn that respect is a two-way street. This reinforces respect all round and boosts self confidence as the usual power hierarchy between adults and children is not relevant in our martial art.

    Upwey Tae Kwon Do and Self Defense

    08-02-2016 by Faith Nicholls

    This has been the best activity my son has ever been involved with. Excellent mentoring and teaching . My son developed great confidence in himself as well as learning new skills.

    Answer from Upwey Tae Kwon Do and Self Defence on 19-05-2016:
    Self confidence in children, especially teenagers, will help them to resist negative peer pressure and thus make them safer. Regular training in a safe non-competitive environment will boost their confidence as they learn. This is compared to a competitive environment which disadvantages those who cannot keep up with others, often resulting in a lowering of self confidence.

    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. But as we grow older our response is often overridden by our 'intelligent ...

    Self defence: A lesson in safer living

    Self Defence is much less about one's ability to fight and more about knowledge of one's self and environment. We are born with a natural instinct for survival and self-preservation but in our modern 'civilised' society much of this instinct has been conditioned out of us, particularly in women. The victim is often punished along with the perpetrator, especially as children in school when rules against ‘fighting' often punish the victim as well as the bully. We learn that standing up for oursel...
