'We pin, we lock, we choke and we throw if you are slow'
Judo is best known for its spectacular throwing techniques and considerable grappling on the ground utilising specialized pins, control holds, arm locks and choking techniques. Judo develops discipline and respect for oneself and others. It provides the means for developing self-confidence, concentration and leadership skills, as well as that of physical coordination, power and flexibility.
The NYJC Judo Team participates in the National Schools Judo Championships and many other national competitions organised by the Singapore Judo Federation. In preparation for these major competitions, both the Girls’ and Boys’ teams train thrice a week (till beginning of April) to sharpen our techniques and build up our strength. Training sessions are on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5pm to 7.30pm during term time and the holidays. These sessions give us great exposure and confidence.
In 2015, the Boy's team managed to come in as first runner-up in the National Team Championships and our many other glistening medals stand as testimony to the months of intensive and gruelling training under our skilful and experienced coach Mr Gerard Lim. We aim to bring pride to our college and ourselves. All are welcome to join our team and our practices.
