12 week program

PRE-JUDO (AGE 4*-6)

$200.00 per semester

Pre-Judo is one of the first steps an individual can take to be introduced to the Olympic sport of Judo. This class focuses on the principles of Judo taught in a fun and relaxed environment. A mix of fun Judo games, judo specific and non-specific exercises with interactive drills are used to develop overall body control including balance, coordination, flexibility, self-awareness, and the awareness of others.  Pre-Judo starts to lay the groundwork for developing Judo specific skills being taught in our Junior classes. These classes are limited in size, so be sure to register early to reserve a spot.

* Although we accept 4 year old’s, we would prefer they be enrolled in preschool  to help with the concept of a classroom environment.

5 month program

JUNIOR CLASS (AGE 7-12)

$350.00 per semester

The Junior class picks up where Pre-Judo leaves off, with a large focus on the basic techniques and principles of Judo. The class retains a fun and relaxed environment, but has a larger focus on understanding the nature and spirit of Judo.

The junior program also allows our athletes to compete at the local and provincial level tournaments.  Students in this class will have the opportunity to travel and compete against other judoka from across the province.

5 month program

SENIOR CLASS (AGE 12+)

$350.00 per semester

This class is for the competitive judoka and adults.  Focusing on the technical aspects of Judo, and striving to develop and improve at any level.  Tournament preparation, higher intensity drills and randori (free practice) are geared towards athletes reaching for that next level.

In the Seniors Class, competitive students can expect to travel and compete at provincial and national tournaments, as well as attend provincial and national training camps.

CALGARY JUDO CENTRE

The Airdrie Judo Club is proud to partner with the Hiro’s Judo Club and Ishi Yama Judo Club to create the Calgary Judo Centre (CJC). This collaboration is to develop an opportunity for strong junior athletes and very experienced competitive judoka to train together.

This program is run by one of Team Alberta’s coaches and focuses on the technical aspects of becoming a national champion and representing Canada internationally.

For more information, please talk to Sensei Paul.

Attention Airdrie Judo Club Members

First I would like to thank all of our members on being diligent in following all the safety protocols. Our practices have been safe and very well attended.

Unfortunately, we have been given direction from the Province of Alberta and Judo Alberta to shut down for two weeks. Email is below.

Good Evening Judo Alberta Members,

As you may already know, due to the recent spike in Covid-19 cases the Government of Alberta has implemented new Covid-19 restrictions effective November 13th-27th.

“Indoor group fitness classes and team sports will be prohibited for two weeks from Nov. 13-27, Premier Jason Kenney announced Thursday afternoon. This applies to the Calgary area, Edmonton area, Fort McMurray, Grande Prairie, Lethbridge and Red Deer.” https://globalnews.ca/news/7457835/stricter-covid-19-measures-alberta/

All Judo Alberta member clubs in these areas must halt all judo activities for this two week period. As indicated in our Return to Play Guidelines, we must follow the recommendations of the Government of Alberta as we continue to work through this.

Thank you again to all of our members, the dedication and thoughtfulness everyone has shown to each other and the club. Take care for yourself and your families.

Sensei Paul Hachey
