Kudo Australia membership mid-year applications and renewals are due now!
Why is Kudo Australia growing so quickly? Kudo is a traditional, safe and exciting Japanese mixed martial art. Kudo is not for armchair warriors seeking mystical, magical martial art secrets. Kudo-ka walk a hard path learning traditional martial virtues and conditioning their mind and bodies via realistic, physical, yet safe, training. A Kudo black-belt is rare and commands respect.
Kudo is a complete martial art. Kudo-ka practice punches, kicks, knees, elbows, head-butts, judo-style throws, wrestling takedowns, chokes and joint locks. Yet Kudo is more than the sum of these parts; the rules allow infinite combinations of these skills – your possibilities are limited only by your imagination and commitment to training. Only in Kudo are you allowed to use head-butts to set up throws and set up submissions with strikes. Kudo safety equipment enables members to hone these skills in realistic full-contact sparring.
Kudo Australia members enjoy access to Kudo equipment, seminars, competitions, gradings and more. This month Melbourne will host a National Kudo seminar, tournament and grading. Next month Kudo SA will take a team to Japan train in preparation for the international Kudo Summer Camp in August.
Annual membership is only $44 per person.
