Who are we

Sensei Oren Janiv

Judo Matsu is owned and operated by Sensei Oren Janiv.

Oren has studied and competed in Judo for over 19 years. During this time he became a Australian representative en-route to qualify for the Rio Olympics. Through this tenacious goal, Oren travelled the world in search of the best in the sport – whether it be in search of bettering his own Judo techniques from world class coaches; to developing his fighting spirit by competing in the world’s top competitions.

Oren did not qualify for Rio, but his epic journey provided him with unique experiences and was lucky enough to experience Judo at its finest and formed a exceptional base of knowledge and true love for the art of Judo.

Oren is also a passionate and experienced teacher, and has been coaching kids and adults Judo for many years. He holds a Bachelor of Education in Health & Physical Education, alongside a Diploma of Fitness. Oren has worked as a High School Teacher and Personal Trainer where he leverages his knowledge and experience to help people rediscover motivation, a strong work ethic, and a healthy lifestyle.

Oren looks forward to welcoming you into his club!
