Who We Are
Texas Judo is a co-ed judo club at the University of Texas at Austin. We are open to all skill levels and aim to better ourselves mentally and physically as individuals through the art of Judo. We practice Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 6:00-8:00pm and Sunday from 4:00-6:00pm in the Rec Sports center. We all share a passion for this traditional sport and love to see each other succeed and the sport thrive!
What We’re Fundraising For
As the only club at UT Austin representing Judo, one of the most popular Olympic sports in the world, our club has a diverse membership, fueled by both experienced and novice members, from both domestic and foreign locations. Our club strives to support our many members in a variety of ways, including but not limited to tournament fees, travel costs, and gear costs. We are non-profit, run entirely by students, and our dues are only $40 for each semester, which allows us to send our members to a few tournaments around Texas. We love to encourage and support all our members as we go across Texas to fight for the Longhorn Spirit! With your help we can spread this comradery and promote success amongst our fellow Longhorns here at UT Austin!
Through the generosity of our donors’ gifts, Texas Judo is able to pay for tournament entry fees, uniforms, and club apparel for our students. Being able to go to tournaments in club apparel helps build close bonds between our members that last a lifetime. Additionally, going to tournaments in Texas Judo shirts helps spread awareness of not just the sport club, but of the University of Texas at Austin as well. Texas Judo represents UT with pride, and this may bring more potential students to the university. Not only that, but we may end up bringing more students and community members into our ranks, some of whom may even be donors to our cause. For many of us, the judo club has become a home. We would like to open our arms and extend this family, but we cannot do so without our donors’ support.
