what is judo?

Judo is a Japanese martial art focused on leveraging the force of an opponent against them. The beauty of this art lies in its flexibility, as millions of people practice it for diverse reasons: from sports and fitness to a means of self-defense and a way of life.

As many of you are aware that the nation's circuit breaker has been extended to 1st June, The Dojo is aware of the challenges faced with regards to the stringent actions executed to curb the spread of Covid-19. 

Mental and physical health is crucial during this period. The Dojo is here to help alleviate the stress of working from home and home-based learning. We are providing an online community-based live training programme. We have actually been doing this since March and it has been well-received by our online participants thus far! 

While it may not be the same as training in person at The Dojo, our participants have been joining our sessions diligently and with much enthusiasm. 
It is a novel yet fun way to maintain fitness together and also meet their friends virtually! 























For newcomers to our virtual training sessions, we are offering a free trial. For those, who are unable to commit to the package, fret not, ad-hoc sessions will be at $25 per session.

Kids Judo Online/High-Performance Kids & Teens
$250 - unlimited training sessions 
Parents with more than one child who likes to participate will just need to top up $50. 

If you are keen to give it a shot, just reply to us with your preferred day and time of the session. We will then issue you the Zoom meeting ID and password. 

Hope to have your support!

(father of 2 kids)

I have two sons aged 4 and 7 learning the art of Judo at The Dojo in Katong. Both boys enjoy Judo tremendously and attend between 2-4 classes a week. They are also very active in other sports such as Rugby and Gymnastics. 

As a parent, I have found the discipline, respect, diligence, and perseverance involved in the teaching and learning of Judo to be excellent and transfers over to other aspects In life. My sons are learning to become strong in the mind and the body as they become more athletic, agile, flexible and confident through the physical aspects of Judo. 
As a rugby coach and rugby player myself I highly recommend the art of Judo to everyone! It will transform you.


(father of 3 kids)

I have three kids ages 10,9,7 and all of them had a great time over their weekends at The Dojo. Being a Judoka myself, it was nice to see that the class size was not too big (averaging 10 kids at the class we attended) allowing Tan Yi to spend 100% of the lesson time with my kids even as a more advanced class was in progress with other coaches. I think the kids could feel the attention and as a result, even my youngest son who tends to have difficulty concentrating could focus well. Hope you guys keep up the good work!
