WHAT IS JUDO ?
Judo is a modern Olympic sport originating in Japan, which uses techniques and quick reflexes to get another partner off balance and take them down to the mat. It combines the ancient culture of the orient with today’s concept of sport, fair play, sense of achievement and the fun of taking part.
 

WHO CAN PLAY JUDO ?
Children of all ages from five upwards, both boys and girls can practice judo together. It is very much a group activity.
 

ABOUT THE CLASSES
Classes usually last between forty five minutes to one hour depending on the age group involved. The emphasis of the class is on safety and fun. The lesson consists of a thorough warm-up, followed by instruction in the following:

  • ETIQUETTE AND JAPANESE TERMINOLOGY
 
THE BENEFITS

EQUIPMENT
Judo is played on a special matted area. Children may start the course in a tracksuit or similar loose clothing, however a proper judo suit can be purchased from the instructor if so required. The reasons for this are SAFETY and A SENSE OF BELONGING.
