...so you're thinking of joining Judo
maybe this will help you decide...


If you are really interested in trying Judo, please don't hesitate to come down and try it out! We are a fairly informal club that keeps the traditions of bowing and respect, with good team spirit. We do not ask for money up front -- you are more than welcome to try Judo out for a few weeks at our club before making your decision to join or not. We understand that Judo isn't for everyone and there is no pressure to stay.

If you are interested in trying Judo, find some old comfortable clothes and keep in mind they may get stretched or torn. For everyone's safety and well being, please remember not to wear clothing with buttons or zippers and to remove all piercings and jewelry because Judo is a contact sport. You do not need a judogi (judo outfit) for the first while as you will begin with learning basic tumbling and holddowns. You can purchase a judogi later.

The Moose Jaw Koseikan Judo Club has classes that accomodate two types of judoka: the recreational and the competitive. You can train at either level at our club and since many of our athletes attend the area tournaments, you can be sure to compete in them if you wish.

Not from around Moose Jaw? Send us an email and we will try to help you find a local club too! Our club is a member of Judo Saskatchewan and Judo Canada, which is recognized by the International Judo Federation as the governing body of Judo in Canada.
