SYLLABUS FOR JUDOKA (Judo Student)

The following Syllabus Is currently adopted by the Perseketuan Judo Malaysia (PJM), also known as Malaysia Judo Federation (MJF). Beginners will be taught the very important Break-Falls to ensure safety in later throwing techniques. Beginners will require 3-4 months to complete initial training to coloured belt, based on regularly 2 sessions a week. Practicing Judokas shall be graded from time to time to qualify for promotion, and to attain Black Belt status eventually. Many of the techniques taught by the instructors are widely used in National and International Judo Championships. In later part, when Judokas have achieved greater skills, the Syllabus embodies some 'dangerous' techniques like strangulations, arm locks, the Sutemis and Makikomi.

Qualified International Judo Federation (IJF) instructors will be available to provide the necessary expertise and training, to teach from beginners to advance classes. Every Judoka shall have the opportunity to attain competent levels of Judo until reaching the coveted Black Belt status, and go on to greater proficiency in Judo's highest Dan grades.

TAKE ACTION NOW and join a Judo Club. There may be Judo Dojos (place of practice) in your areas.
