We are currently at Warrawong Public School Cowper street, in the “old Hall” located at the rear of the school after entering the gates.. There is plenty of parking.

These classes consist of learning social interaction with others, teamwork, and personal development, our stranger danger awareness is one of the best. Judo will motivate you, build confidence, increase fitness whilst controlling obesity levels, and most importantly kids learn the Olympic sport of judo which is a skill for life.

The sport of Judo / Sambo: is an art of self-defence that has developed into an exciting International sport. The formidable Professor Jigoro Kano brought to existence the Kodokan Judo on February 1882 & with this a wealth of techniques that for decades were tried & tested.
For this great achievement, we are able to compete at levels such as the Olympic Games which, saw the introduction of judo at the (1964 Olympic Games) & its inclusion in the Commonwealth Games in (1990).

Without forgetting that Professor Kanos ambition was to develop Judo to
show the individual that one does not have to be big to demobilize their attacker from any angle. In achieving Professor Kanos goal one can only begin to understand the true mechanics of Judo as a sport & self-defense & what it stands for. The compiling of techniques from throws to full submissions have brought about an art that once you have trained in Judo you will never forget.

OUR CLUB HISTORY: Wollongong judo was formed in 1992 on the beach at (oilys)when I moved out from my learning club of Berkeley Judo Club,WJC became officially recognized in 1998 with membership through the Australian Judo Federation the Australian Kodokan Association the International Budo Federation from under the Cuttas submission fighting school, first located at (oilys then North beach Wollongong, with members joining the JFA and KJA.

In 1992 a few mates and I got together and started to train down the beach (Oilys),as we didn’t have a club hall so training at Berkeley judo on Mondays and Wednesdays then down the beach on the other days so training in the sand was normal for about 4yrs. Original members were Jamie Davies, Andy Harper, Kenny and Jason Harris, Adam and Kane Weaks, and of course me. without their drive, I would not have continued to the level I have achieved. The numbers became too big for the beach location and we were forced to find a bigger place, from the sand to the north beach pool hall then the Polish Association thanks to President Vick. Then the old Dance Studio in North Wollongong and then 550 sq mt hall Montague st North Wollongong)that has 2 full-size contest mats areas set up (2nd biggest in the state next to the state sports center) plus a full-size cage and bags, then 300 sqm and now to Port Kembla.

CUTTAS SUBMISSION FIGHTING SCHOOL: Judo/Sambo/MMa/ Pangration has become one of the most advanced training schools in Australia: for training new students from start to the elite level.

The club has grown in such that players have branched out to expand their knowledge and compete in several other arts, our club is proud to have had players like Camron Nell, Scott Knight, Max Lemme, Rhys Whiteford, Juan Valencia, Zac McKenzie, Arron Neibrook, Kyle Montgomery, Loyd and Tom Simpson, Tegan David, Jess Moules just to name a few, students like these were an honor to teach.

In the Year 2005, we decided to open up to teaching kids from the age of 5 thanks to my friend’s touch, now we are expanding and looking for places to reach out to others to join our school and become a part of the Illawarra’s most recognized martial arts school a community-supported education that all can be proud of.
