Ulverstone Judo Club

Ulverstone Sign 2

Ulverstone Judo Club is situated in the beautiful beachside town of Ulverstone. The club was under the long running tutelage of John Deacon, a past-President of the Judo Federation of Australia, and used to train in the West Ulverstone Showgrounds. Under his leadership, the club outgrew the premises and the club acquired a new dojo at Water St. in East Ulverstone.

The Ulverstone Judo Club has since grown again, and now boasts state of the art facilities at its present site, the Ulverstone Sports & Recreation Centre, 1 Flora Street, West Ulverstone. The club is well-patroned and is lead by a very capable coaching staff.

    To whom this may concern I just wanted to touch base with John or anyone who could point me in the right direction. I want to compete in judo again I use to train under Michael Collins in Burnie but i now train through a different club am I able to represent the club I’m with now ? Or would I have to train through a judo only club ? Thanks

    Hi Chris if you are registered through Judo Tasmania you are able to compete. If you are registered with Kokodan Judo you can compete however there is extra cost to cover insurance.
    Hope this helps
