Nippon Judo Schools is a business venture, born out of a passion for Judo and education. This is the driving force behind the founder, Johan Boshoff.


Johan spent his childhood in South Africa, coached by his mentor and "second dad" Kokkie Uys. Through this man, he developed a love for the sport, and got an insight in the benefits the sport bring to participants. These benefits are not only for the few people who compete, but for the majority of others involved in other aspects of the sport, such as recreation, administration and just being parents of participants.


After emigrating to New Zealand in 2000, Johan started Nippon Judo Schools on the Auckland North Shore. Initially, all classes were run at schools. When some players became competitive, combined training times at a central venue was found, and the club went from strength to strength.


More details about the achievements of the club will be added here soon.
