Back To JUDO initiative NSW

"Back to Judo" is our initiative to rebuild Judo in NSW after a long COVID lockdown.

Currently for NSW only - we've no doubt been out of Judo for way too long. However, if you're a Judo club from another state in Australia having it tough and need help raising funds to sustain your club, do get in touch.

"Back to Judo" requirements:

  • You're a known Judo club registered with Judo Australia
  • The main activity conducted for your club is Judo
  • You're the club owner/coach of the Judo Club

What you get:

  • 2 x 650gsm kids competition Judo gi, (size 130/140, white/blue), chosen at random, both FREE (approx $200 value)
  • ~2 x Masks by IPPONGEAR (~$40 value) [No longer available]
  • Top 3 clubs which have supported my business over its lifetime get extra
  • option of a 3rd gi chosen at random

What you need to do to get this initiative:

  • Social media exposure
    • Tag @Dojomats (it shows blue on the post) on facebook and instagram, saying thanks, or anything else you want to add regarding back to judo initiative. If you want to add a picture of the result of selling the gis I certainly wont be stopping you :)

    • Delivery takes about a week or so to NSW (there's tracking)

    • You will be added to our mailing list (dont worry emails dont get sent out often and you can choose to unsubscribe)

    Frequently asked questions:

    • Why kids gi? Any other sizes?
      • statistics say clubs have more kids than adults. The 650gsm gi is very good gi for kids at that age. I also have more of these than any other model. I don't plan to stock these in the future as there are not many competitive kids
    • How does Dojo Mats benefit from this?
      • That little bit of exposure. Your club will benefit financially from the sale of the gis and masks and will hopefully help with some necessities
    • How much can I sell the gis for?
      • I would expect anywhere near the RRP (~$100), so that you can benefit more from the sale of the gis. Selling for anywhere near half the RRP or giving it away is not helpful to helping you raise funds
    • I'm a MMA/BJJ club, can I benefit from this?
      • Unfortunately, this initiative is for the Judo community in NSW/AU only
    • I'm involved with 2 Judo clubs, can i collect for both?
      • No.
    • Does this initiative expire?
      • Yes, Please be in touch before the 15th of Oct
