Schools Judo

Judo in Schools demonstrations and taster days


Judo has been a popular activity for schools for many years. Concentrating largely on fundamental movement skills for the younger years, judo is a great activity and sport to learn for school children of all ages.
Judo encourages respect, fair-play, discipline, resilience and co-operation. There are other obvious physical, social and psychological benefits that taking part in an activity such as judo has been shown to have. Most of all it’s fun!

Judo4Schools is able to deliver across a range of ages and in different settings, including primary, secondary and specialist schools.

Judo4Schools provides judo classes and education across the North of England. Below is a list of what you can expect of our services:

Coaches that are DBS checked, British Judo’s governing body certified, first aid certificated, passed a safe-guarding and protecting children course, and fully insured.
An assembly/demonstration in your school to promote the course to encourage students to attend the course

The children will receive certificates during and at the end of the course.

The classes can be taught before school, curriculum, lunch time, after school and also can be used to cover PPA time.

As an holistic approach to physical exercise, judo has been shown to be of benefit to children and teenagers of differing capabilities and is usually a challenging and rewarding experience.
