Kiora Clubs

The Kiora club started almost 60 years ago as a little garage Judo dojo on the Bluff, Durban, South Africa. Kiora means the "little one". Judo has remained the main martial art practised at Kiora over the years and still has a very strong following to this day. The club even has a road named after it on the Bluff.
