    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

    02-09-2015 by Fitness with a purpose

    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...

    The Music Playground Williamstown

    15-12-2013 by Louise

    My daughter Katya Eva, who is 19 1/2 months, has just completed her first term at the Music Playground Williamstown and it has exceeded my expectations. The programme is exquisite. The hour goes so quickly and flows so nicely due to it being so well organised, interesting and fun. It is a fascinating twist on so many things that my daughter is exposed to and attends, it is a superior music programme, less chaotic and more focused than other music programmes we have attended in the past. The standard of the instruments is very high, it is a clean, comfortable environment and we both really enjoy and look forward to going and participating. Katrina and Sherry are so wonderful with my little girl, very respectful, caring and professional. We will be continuing with the programme right through until Katya is 3 when we look forward to introducing her to the piano and violin. The next 18 months will continue to be a great introduction to her appreciating and respecting music and so many other skills that are learnt and cultivated during the Suzuki Music classes. I highly recommend the wonderful space and environment which the Music Playground Williamstown provides.

    Fun way to learn music

    12-12-2013 by CTanuwidjaja

    We love the classes! My daughter and I have been attending and I can truly see how she has improved in music and how much she enjoys the classes. The classes are taught so children learn music the fun way. The classes also give children exposure to various musical instruments, which is great. And the group format also enables my daughter to learn from other children and she gets more motivated to learn too. The classes involve parents too, and I like that because children learn from parents and parents know what their children are learning so they can help their children learn at home. Last but not least, a wonderful program can only be successful when there is a wonderful teacher.

    Music

    02-12-2013 by Rouge

    My daughters have been taking weekly music lessons with Katrina since 2004. She has a real passion for music which is evident in her own studies and training. Katrina has a strong commitment to her students and patiently guides and encourages them. I believe that if it wasn't for Katrina my daughters would have dropped music a long time ago. The girls now continuously incorporate music into their homework time as opposed to computer games. The girls growing love of music is a tribute to Katrina.

    Wonderful introduction to music

    01-12-2013 by Kate

    I have been loving taking my now five month old son to The Music Playground. The approach, including child participation, singing, movement is wonderful and I can see my son's attention and enjoyment increase each week.

    Great place

    27-10-2014 by Sandra

    I had my sons 10th birthday at three sixty. It was great. They didn't kick us out after our playtime was over and the kids just loved hanging out, chatting and watching tv as they were exhausted from all their jumping. No locked in rooms, just clean open area, perfect for private functions, great customer service and lots of parking.
