The Hobart PCYC Judo club has been one of the longest running clubs in Tasmania, and has been housed at the Hobart PCYC since the 1960s. The judo program is run in accordance with the Australian Judo Federation (JFA), including the accrediting of instructors and grading of participants.

The club’s current head instructor is Garth Morley [shodan] who has been involved with judo for more than twenty five years. His is assisted by Robert Wedd [4thDan].

People practice judo for many different reasons such as exercise, self-defence a social activity and for many practitioners becomes a way of life. Judo is a great exercise routine, it promotes flexibility, develops speed and co-ordination and is perfect for both active boys and girls and people of all ages.

Hobart PCYC Judo Club takes students aged from 7 years and up, and is suited for those at a beginner level, right through to advanced students. It is the perfect learning environment for all ages interested in Judo, and due to its wonderful relationship with the Hobart PCYC, is able to make full use of the facilities – including the well-appointed gym and weights room.
