Our Club

Ni Bonchi Judo Club was founded in 1981 by John Fairhall.

At Ni Bonchi our goal is to provide a fun and social experience for all involved while teaching people the unique sport of Judo. Judo is a complex and skillful sport, and is suitable for people of all ages (must be 6yrs and up to register). There is a unique grading system so everyone can progress at their own pace. Judo does not involve kicking or punching!


All our instructors are qualified so you can be assured of receiving thorough and safe training:
John Fairhall – 3rd Dan
Ashley Hayes – 3rd Dan and Continental Referee
Neil Hayes – 2nd Dan and Oceania Referee
Ian Little – 1st Dan
David Eichner – 1st Dan
