Judo is a dynamic sport that teaches you how to use your opponent's strength and momentum to your advantage. Through Judo, you'll gain physical fitness, mental discipline, and valuable self-defence skills.

At SMU Judo, we are a close-knit team of dedicated, skilled, and disciplined members. Our training covers essential aspects like fall-breaking techniques, precise form, and sparring with fellow Judokas. Above all, the goal of Judo is to do your best and have fun! You can expect a welcoming and friendly community of diverse individuals who spend time together both on and off the mats!

Despite being a relatively new club, we have already established ourselves within the Judo community, clinching first place in the coveted Inter-Tertiary Competition in 2023. Join us and experience an adrenaline rush like never before!

Students do not need to audition to join SMU Judo. We welcome everyone who is willing to join because we are committed to letting other people experience Judo.

"I'm interested in joining Judo because I'm interested in learning self-defense and also keeping fit in uni!"

- Sharlene Tio, School of Computing and Information Systems Year 1

"I was from martial arts background and will like to explore Judo as a CCA in SMU."

- Mike Siew, School of Accountancy Year 1



Definitely! No experience is needed as we would be guiding newcomers through the basics properly. Judo is a sport for everyone, and it is never too late to start learning! Newcomers only need to commit to trying their best and have fun!

Like any strenuous sport or fitness activity, there is a chance of injury in practicing Judo. However, safety is SMU Judo’s number 1 priority with our safety & operations director attending every training and keeping everyone safe. Additionally, the very first thing a Judoka learns is how to prevent injuries. 

You can join us at any fitness level. Even if you’re not athletic or fit, we can always start training together! 

At SMU Judo, we encourage our Judokas to compete because nothing beats the thrill of competition and/or being rewarded for your hard work. However, Judo is not just about competition, but a sport that is enjoyed by everyone who participates. It will be up to the individual to decide whether they want to compete.
