If you are new to judo, your first session is free!!
After your 1st session if you want to continue we will ask you to purchase a 3-month provisional judo licence, or one of the other licences available if you prefer.
Once you have a licence, there is no training fee for your 2nd session, but after that you will need to sign up to one of our membership options. Fees are paid monthly in advance by Direct Debit. SAJC offers training sessions for around 48 weeks of every year and our fees are spread equally across the months.
For the Ginmedaru options, you can attend additional sessions by purchasing a PAYG pass from our store.
We also have Annual Advance pricing rates if you would prefer to pay for a whole year upfront. These are available after 3 months of attendance, please speak to us if this is of interest.

What to wear
For the first few classes you can wear tracksuit bottoms without zips/ buttons/ anything hard that could injure yourself or others when breakfalling. Girls should also wear a plain white T-shirt. These items may get pulled/ stretched so don’t wear anything you can’t afford to write off! Please use an elastic hair band to tie any long hair back (no metal hair clips are allowed).
We have spare judo jackets that you can use – just ask someone for help if you’re stuck. You’ll be expected to buy your own gi (judo outfit) if you decide to join. These are available at the club shop.
The club asks you to fill out a membership form on your first visit.
The club shop carries a stock of judo clothing and accessories for members, including judo suits, and club branded kit.
