Welcome to Caulfield Judo

Caulfield Judo Club is amongst the oldest judo clubs in Australia having passed it’s 50th anniversary in 2013.

Arthur J Moorshead with two other partners leased land and built the club in 1963. Over the ensuing years Arthur bought the two partners out and in 1993 Arthur and Susie Moorshead purchased the land.

The original mats were sawdust covered with carpet underlay (cowfelt) in those days, which was covered with a canvas. The canvas had to be replaced approximately every three years and it was decided in 1982 to import mats from Foldeak in Germany.

Caulfield Judo Club today is amongst the largest permanent dojo's in Australia - with a tatami area of 198 m sq.

Visitors are always welcome!
