Not only do you learn the techniques of Judo in our lessons, but the philosophy behind the art of the sport. Beginning with a bow as a sign of respect, the lessons continue, learning how to coordinate and balance your body and mind.
Just as in life, participants will be thrown, pinned down and challenged, pushing you to learn and study from your mistakes. Judo is a sport that challenges the mind and body to work as one!
Self Control and discipline
Judo is a powerful sport, where skills are practised on another human being. A sport that is bounded by self-control and discipline. Not only is it a test of strength, it gains confidence. Also for children the sport is very popular, not for nothing! As children start to realise their physical potential and gain in strength, fighting ability, their confidence improves.
The Feeling of Throwing For Ippon
The thrills in Judo are experienced with low risk, as you will learn how to fall correctly during the lessons. A "knockout", also known a Ippon, results in a person getting right back up without injury.
It is A Martial Art and An Olympic Sport
The sport comes with many benefits, but people practising it, don't just see Judo as a form of physical exercise, but as an art. Not only are the techniques of Judo taught, but the vast and colourful history. It is an art suitable for all ages, not just for the elite and super fit.
Respect Is Taught From The beginning
Respecting yourself and others is the central lesson to Judo. From the initial bow to avoiding injury of yourself and others, it is a lesson that you or your child will learn time and time again and that can carry though to all aspects of life.
Finally, the sport is great way to learn the art of problem solving. Whilst practising Judo, you will face many problems in a high pressured environment, causing you to think fast on your feet and learn how to adapt to the situation with the skills that yuu have learnt. Judo will inspire self-development in and outside of the sport, and will teach you to ask questions that will empower you such as 'how can I avoid this situation' and 'how can I improve in this area'.
