Why Kids Should Do Judo:
1. Self Awareness
Seeing their child excited about learning is something all parents strive to achieve. Judo is mentally and physically stimulating in a productive learning environment. By learning to synchronise their mind with their body, kids become very aware of themselves and others.

2. Flexibility and Balance
We all know children who are injury prone. The kids who seem to find ways of tripping over, getting stuck in strange spots and other creative ways of hurting themselves. Usually not the Judo kids though. By learning the techniques and movements involved in Judo children are twisted, turned, contorted and as a result increase their flexibility. These exercises also help kids maintain balanced posture even if they do stumble.

3. Concentration and Focus
When participating in a Judo class a student needs to remain focused so as to not injure themselves or their classmates. Also, Judo whilst appearing to be just a bunch of kids wrestling and play fighting actually teaches kids about balance, force production and biomechanics without them even realising.

4. Ethical Competition
Judo competitions are quite different from other ‘fights’. The process involves bowing to your opponent and the referee; these are acknowledgements of your opponent’s willingness to engage you in a bout and the referee’s position in control of the fight. The compulsory bowing and handshake upon completion of the fight means sportsmanship is paramount.

5. Self Defense
Though we hate to think of kids being in a violent setting there is a chance they may possibly be put in such a situation. Judo does not teach weapons fighting or even striking (punches and kicks) however they learn to grapple and control an opponent to defend long enough for a chance to run away unscathed. The confidence that Judo gives a child also helps to make them bully-proof.

Adult’s Judo Class

Why do Judo?
Judo training is tough, allowing your body to be better prepared mentally and physically to withstand the rigors of an assault. It’s more complete because it has standing and ground fighting skills. It provides a better sense of true accomplishments because there is no “make believe” in its training. It’s an excellent sport to cross-train in because it offers great development in balance, kinesthetic awareness, coordination and ruggedness.
