Annual Judo (NSW) Membership and Club Training Fees effective 1st January 2024

  1. Judo NSW and Budokan Judo Club. To be able to participate in Judo training at Budokan Judo Club, some administration with two separate organisations is required:

a) Judo NSW (which is Budokan's parent organisation under Judo Australia and the International Judo Federation); and
b) Budokan Judo Club Inc.

  1. Forms. The following forms must be completed before new members are able to participate in any session at Budokan Judo Club:

a) Budokan Club Membership Form and
b) Risk Warning and Waiver Form

With the exception of the Mini-Kids membership (for the Dino Kids Class), Judo NSW and Budokan Judo Club Inc. (Budokan) both offer a no obligation one-month trial option. Alternatively, new club members may wish to become financial with Judo NSW immediately and also pay Budokan training fees immediately or prior to expiry of the one-month trial period. The options are explained below.

Section 1. For the first month of training

  1. 3. Judo NSW Trial Membership.

a) Mini-Kids membership for Budokan Dinos Class. Please note that the Judo NSW Trial Membership is not available for the Mini-Kids Membership, which is for club members 4 or 5 years of age and not yet at school. For these children, you must purchase the $50 annual membership after the second Budokan Dinos Class.

b) Juniors and Seniors membership for Budokan Classes. Prior to your first class, unless you want to pay your Judo NSW registration up-front (see Section 2 below), new members must obtain a "Trial Membership" from "Judo NSW". This is done on-line and there is no cost at the time of registering for your trial period. Through the Trial Membership, Judo NSW provides a 4 week no-obligation trial period for new members which includes insurance coverage.  Please note that for the Wednesday Dinos class (for 4 and 5 year old pre-school kids), the MONS class (for kids turning 5 to 8 years in the year who attend school), and for the Monday Senior (turning 15 years or older in the year), intake of new members occurs ONLY for the first 2 weeks of each school term. Therefore, for the MONS and Senior classes, please don't obtain a "Trial Membership" from Judo NSW" until JUST PRIOR to your first class, as the month trial period is triggered from the registration. New members (Not Mini-Kids membership for children in the Dinos Class) can register their trial membership with Judo NSW as follows. 

How to Purchase the (one month) Judo NSW Trial Membership - for all Seniors (16 years and over at time of registration) and Juniors (Under 16 years).

Note: Trial Membership does not apply to Mini-Kids (Dino Class) for children aged 4 and 5 years old and not at school.

       4. "Dino" Classes.

k) The Mini-Kids Membership is for children (4 and 5 years old and not at school) who participate in the Budokan Dino classes. Mini-Kids will not have access to Judo NSW membership programs including gradings and tournaments. This class is a pre-Judo pre-school education program.

l) Because of the lower registration fee, the Judo NSW trial membership is not available for the "Mini-Kids Membership" used for the Dino classes.

m) After the second Dino class, you must register online with Judo NSW. Please follow the process at Section 2, paragraph 6 below.

5.    Budokan Judo Club Training Fees.

n) Budokan Judo Club also offers a no obligation one month trial period before a commitment must be made regarding training fees. This takes effect during the Judo NSW Trial Membership period. Options for training fees are provided later in this document. Should a new member decide to continue to train after the one-month trial period, club training fees become due and will be back-dated to the first session. Please be proactive in paying for your training fees. Refer to Section 2 below.

o) If new members leave after the one month trial period, there is no cost. If new members wish to pay training fees up-front, this is also possible.
