FIRST PRACTICE—BE PREPAIRED

 
  • All participants must be registered and current with one of the following recognized Judo associations: USA/ USJI, USJF or USJA. USA Judo membership allows competition in any venue therefore we believe this is the best choice. Apply for your USA judo membership by completing the online application on www.usjudo.org  prior to attending your first class. Bring evidence of your current judo association membership to the first training sessions in order to register for the Fayetteville/Ft. Bragg Judo Club training. (print the email or other documents to present at the time of registration) 

  • Coaches: Some of the most knowledgeable in the area; we place people in National and International competition however competition is your choice. You may participate for recreation/conditioning or to fulfill a desire to compete in the Olympic Sport of judo. Our staff of qualified coach’s includes an International Gold Coach, several Coaches’ that are still competing but are available to help you learn their favorite techniques. We also have a National Judo referee on staff that will keep you abreast of the latest changes in the International Judo competition rules. All our coach’s are volunteers and give their time willingly to assist you in this wonderful life long sport. 

  • Schedule: Training/practice sessions are every Tuesday and Thursday evenings with the Junior sessions held from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. and the Senior trainings from 7:00 pm to 8:30 p.m. Saturday classes are held from 9:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. and announced during the Thursday session and through email.

  • Location: Our dojo (place of practice) is the Fayetteville Police Department Training Center on Bus I-95/301 South across from the Botanical Gardens. Check the Google map on our web site. Come early for your first session to complete all the required registration documents. 

  • Cost: The cost is very reasonable: $20.00 per month for children/youth up to age 18, $25.00 for persons age 18 and older and $30.00 for families with two or more children. In addition to the monthly fees there is an initial administration fee of $25.00. The onetime administration fee of $25.00 per person is charged payable at the initial registration. This fee includes a club T- shirt and club patch. Team athletic uniforms are available for an additional fee. Monthly instruction fees are kept extremely low due to the support we receive from the Fayetteville Police Department. Members of The Fayetteville Police Department and their families are exempt from club dues. Also, participants who are recognized Judo black belts are exempt from club dues if they assist in teaching.

    It is for your safety and the safety of others you must wear an approved Judo uniform, Gi. Judo uniform prices range from $32.00 (small child’s size) to $49.00 (for an extra large man or women’s size). Gi’s are available at the dojo (place of practice) at the above mentioned prices or you may purchase one at any place you desire. If you purchase at our dojo bring cash for the transaction.

  • Rank: Any judo rank you earn is recognized nationally and internationally. Once you earn the rank you will receive a recognized USA Judo certificate. 

  • Bring a Friend: If you are a new student it is recommended that you bring a friend of the same experience level so you have a regular work out partner and can learn together at your own speed. If bringing a friend is not possible it is not an issue. You will receive the same instruction and there are many people in the class for you to work out with and learn. 

  • Suggested Reading: Judo is more than just a sport. To receive the most from this experience, increase your understanding of this Olympic Sport by reading and learning about judo. We encourage students to read books and other recommended material to study judo as the history and philosophy is very important. Ask a Fayetteville/Ft. Bragg Judo Club coach to provide recommendations. 
 
Lastly and most important, Judo is hard to learn and takes patience’s and commitment, judo participants must adhere to common courtesies on and off the mat. We provide for a structured class and require our students to adhere to rules of safety and respect.
