Judo Australia is the national sporting organisation for Judo in Australia

Judo Australia has the broader remit to develop and promote the sport of Judo in Australia, including the delivery of National events, Performance Pathway programs and participation growth initiatives


Australia has competed in every Olympic judo competition since the Tokyo 1964 Games, where Ted Boronovskis won a bronze medal in the open category. However, with 13 million participants in 111 countries, the popularity of judo makes targeted pathways from beginner to elite critical to foster national success at the international level.

In partnership with Judo Australia, CombatAUS is committed to providing an effective, functional, and well-understood athlete pathway from beginner to the elite level.


The CombatAUS National Performance Centre (NPC) is an athlete-centred, coach-led performance environment for Australian Judo and Taekwondo athletes to further develop their skills and push their international performance to new levels. The NPC is designed to support its full-time athletes with targeted technical and support services to help them reach international success at major competitions.

Based in Melbourne, the NPC was recently awarded Olympic Training Centre recognition by the Australian Olympic Committee. The Olympic Training Centre status recognises the role the facility plays in preparing Australian athletes to achieve international success on the world stage and compete at the Olympic Games.
