    About Our Classes

    Training The art taught by the Peter Morton Academy of Judo Jujitsu Karate has three basic influences: Kodokan Judo, Jujitsu and Kempo Karate. It is designed primarily as a self defence art.

    Alternative Education in the Martial Arts A student may wish to participate in a martial art but may be deterred by the overt physical nature, dynamics and pressure to perform. The AEiM method is suitable for students unable to participate in a traditional system, due to ability, age, mobility or injury concerns.

    What Students Wear Once a student has made a decision to continue training they wear a martial arts uniform, called a judogi.

    Instructors All instructors have coaching accreditation, first aid certification, sports trainer education and donate their time freely. Instructors are called ‘Sensei’.
