Judoka provides a complimentary introduction to schools, providing an explanation and demonstration of the Olympic Sport of Judo. The timing of this is entirely up to you but we have found that most schools find assembly to be the most convenient time for this.
Following the introduction, we offer a series of taster sessions in schools. These provide opportunities for students to try Judo for themselves, get to grips with a modern martial art and gives them an idea of what to expect from the sessions in future.
Following successful introductions to Judo, schools request a further block of Judo or look to start a weekly Judo club within the school!
Yes! All of our coaches hold a MINIMUM of a UKCC Level 2 certificate in Judo Coaching (or equivalent) and have Advanced DBS checks. Part of our coaching revalidation requires all coaches to hold First Aid and Safeguarding qualifications too.
If the school has suitable gym mats we can use those, if not we can bring our own mats to sessions. We require a space to practice Judo too, ideally a sports hall or assembly hall.
If the taster sessions are successful and you want to offer Judo as a curriculum or before/after school activity we offer 5 week slots and require a minimum of 10 students. We recommend pre-booking your classes as we book up very quickly.
