ANU Judo Beginners (Lifestyle) Course
The beginners course is designed to teach the basic principles of Judo and to enable you to practice various techniques with confidence. You will learn how to fall without injury, improve your balance and co-ordination and be able utilize an opponent's strengths and aggression to your advantage. The basic techniques of Judo are divided into throwing and ground work techniques. The aim is to throw your opponent to the mat with a throwing technique and when not in a standing position to use grappling techniques classified as immobilizations, strangles or arm locks. Participants are taught how to safeguard themselves from injury and techniques are applied in a controlled manner. ANU Sport schedules classes at the start of each semester. Prospective beginners are welcome to call around to any of our training sessions to have a chat and even trial a class. In Judo, you’ll develop some skills and will actually get to see how effective the techniques are during freestyle practice during the class.
