About the project
Judo is an inclusive and engaging sport which is suitable for people of all ages and all abilities. Judo is also one of the safest contact sports for children and the best initial training sport for children and young people aged 4-21 years. Judo Australia along with our Member States and affiliated club network is able to offer competitive and recreational participation opportunities for everyone on a regular basis in the club environment.
Judo4Kids is an introductory program combining fun and physical activity for children along with the learning of fundamental judo techniques, terminology and values; including friendship and respect, that will stay with them throughout their lives.
Judo has a strong moral culture that can enrich children’s lives from the mat to their everyday life. Judo4Kids is a fun and enjoyable way for children to learn Judo and benefit from the various social, physical and mental benefits that this great Olympic sport can provide.
Judo4Kids was launched in 2018 and Judo Australia is now raising funds to help grow and expand this program to engage as many Australian children as possible.
Donations of $2 or more are tax-deductible and funds raised will support the development and expansion of the Judo4Kids program. By expanding our program into more schools and clubs, we can get more children involved in sport and provide them with a safe and healthy activity. The importance of grassroots sport is crucial for providing children with a healthy development for later in life. Your donation to Judo Australia's Judo 4 Kids program will provide children with the ability to participate in our sport and provide an active lifestyle.
