INNISFAIL Judo Club is hosting a free Come and Try and Pink Belt night on Tuesday, October 19, at their Dojo located at Pavilion 1, Innisfail Showgrounds.


Males and females of all abilities, aged from six to adults, are welcome to attend and try judo. 


A kid’s session starts at 5.15pm, followed by seniors at 6.30pm.


There are great benefits in becoming part of Judo, the world’s oldest sport.


Judo, an Olympic sport, aids in the development of self-discipline, punctuality, good manners, strength, stamina, tenacity, and toughness.


It also builds confidence, self-respect, and respect for others, all character traits that are vital to achieving success and gaining the respect of the local community and society.


Judo brings families and people together, whilst the camaraderie and team spirit gained at training provides a fantastic way of keeping fit and increasing social networks. 


Although judo is a martial art and combat sport, players learn how to fall safely, which is a useful skill, and it teaches balance, coordination, agility, and increases confidence for other contact sports, such as rugby league, rugby union, soccer, and AFL, as well as other sports. 


Multiple Innisfail Judo Club members have competed at Queensland State Titles, Queensland International Open Tournaments, as well as the Australian National Championships, and won medals. 


Anyone wanting more information, should please contact the Innisfail Judo Club Inc on 0410 331 545 (Paul), via email: innisfailjudoclub@hotmail.com or by visiting Innisfail Judo Club Inc Facebook page.
