Blind Sports and Recreation Victoria / Yuki Judo

Yuki Judo is a Dojo (martial arts club) located in Strathmore Heights and dedicated to the teaching and practice of Kodokan Judo, emphasizing not only the physical benefits that Judo provides as a sport, but also the mental and character development that this traditional Japanese martial art provides.

The benefits of Judo people who are blind or vision impaired include:

  • learning how to fall safely
  • improved motor skills, including coordination, balance and speed
  • develop mental and physical strength
  • enhanced self confidence by following a self-improvement pathway towards excellence.


Claudio is a dedicated and compassionate teacher. "Whenever I start talking about Blind Judo, I get excited because I truly believe that it’s an extraordinary activity for blind and vision impaired people".

Call for interest - Come & Try Judo Day

As part of the Active Teens program, we will be conducting a Come & Try Judo Day in the coming months which will be held at Yuki Judo in Strathmore Heights. Kids from the age 3 are welcome to join in.

Judo has many health benefits, both mental and physical and not only builds physical fitness but also improves and develops positive attitudes, values, builds character and develops social and problem-solving skills, allowing you to stay focused and in good shape. It is a wonderful cardiovascular activity and will leave you with a feeling of well-being.

This is a wonderful opportunity to become involved and try out this Olympic sport.
