Judo is an Olympic sport that is popular with millions of people around the world. Founded by Jigoro Kano in 1882, judo translates as ‘the gentle way’. Judo is a great way to stay physically fit and improve mental strength. It can help children to develop self-confidence and self-esteem and it is more than just sport. It is a way of life.

At the core of Judo is a commitment to respect and honour. “Maximum efficiency with minimum effort and mutual welfare and benefit” is a key principle of the sport – not only should students learn to use as little effort as possible to throw their opponent, they should also use the self-discipline and mental strength that judo teaches to contribute to their local community.
