More than 50+ years
of knowledge in Judo.

Co Founder and Current Coach KJC

My 50+ year passion of judo commenced with the Metropolitan Boys Judo Club in 1966 at the age of 10. I lacked eye hand coordination and was fairly easily distracted with team sports. Learning came easy with the Judo group approach.

Two years later I transferred to the Moss Hollis School of Judo and Karate, the foundation of the Kangaroo Judo club. My self-confidence improved as I acquired more skills in self-defense and succeeded at local Judo competitions.
 At age 17, I achieved my first black belt [Sho Dan].

In 1990 my wife and I re-established the Kangaroo Judo Club. I have been the chair of the KJC board and senior coach ever since. To access the national and international pathways of Judo education and more competition the club registered with the Judo Federation of Australia. For my service for Judo SA I have been awarded life membership of Judo SA.

Current Credentials

I continue to practice Judo and believe it can be done by all ages and the emphasis should be in enjoying the success of ones’ achievements in a fun, safe environment.

Empowering woman
in Judo and in life

Hello and welcome to an insight into my Judo world.

As a young woman, my mother in her wisdom introduced me to Moss Hollis a renowned Judo coach in Adelaide. For the next four years I grew up engrossed with all things Judo. Being part of a select group of females within a male dominant sport, there were many life skills to be learned, all of which have been carried through to all aspects of my life, Independence, Confidence and Determination are but some.

Once graduating as a Sho Dan, it became clear that there was a need to spread the Judo word and hence for many years together with my fiancé (now husband), we have passed on the technical and moral codes of Judo to many hundreds of people.

This commitment has flowed to both Club and State board duties.
My ideals of Fairness, Openness and Honesty have always been paramount when dealing with people.
Now some five decades past, Judo ethics continue to govern my life and influence strongly my input into KJC and all members.

Creating a fun, respectful
and safe environment to learn

Roman Zeitz

Current Coach KJC

Hi, I’ve been enjoying judo since 7 years of age and now at 56 years of age it’s still enjoyable! I’ve had two breaks in between — while studying engineering at university and starting a family — so I understand the pressures, that changes in life situations can have on maintaining involvement in sports. Despite these breaks I have nearly 30 years of judo experience, which includes coaching over four years.

In our club, all of us coaches keep abreast of the changes to the national and international rules that govern judo and we maintain our skills by attending various courses and seminars. I particularly like the technical skills and principles of judo where relatively little effort is needed to throw someone or to gain control of the situation. I encourage you to try judo because these principles can be applied across your whole life not just on the judo mat.

My coaching style is to create a fun, respectful and safe environment. Each session is planned and, since everyone learns in different ways and different speeds, I adjust my explanations and demonstrations accordingly. I encourage questioning and a positive attitude because this will lead to their improvement in Judo and, as a bonus, their personal development. This applies to both children and adults.

I look forward to seeing you on the mat for many years to come.
