Judo Education


Dear Parent,


An opportunity for your child to learn Judo is coming to school. Judo is not just a form of self defence, the ancient art is an Olympic combat sport, renowned for raising self confidence and increasing self discipline. Judo is also an excellent way to keep fit and healthy.


The classes are taught by ‘black belts’ who are fully qualified coaches of the British Judo Association, which is the official Governing Body for the sport of Judo in the United Kingdom. They have extensive experience in teaching children of all ages and abilities.


The course will last for 5 weeks and will cost £ 19.00. There is a maximum of 30 children per class. Children will be accepted on a first come, first served basis.


The price includes :


All coaching fees Judo suit hire Certificate of Achievement ‘Spirit of Judo’ Award (Weekly Presentation)


One free introductory session at your local judo club


The course will start on Wednesday 12th November 2008 and will run for five consecutive Wednesday mornings in the school hall.


This is a pre school event and children will have to be at school for a prompt start at 8.00am.


They will then have a 45 minute lesson and afterwards have 10 minutes to change into their school uniform. Children therefore need to come to school in their kit and bring their school uniform with them. Jogging pants or tracksuit bottoms must be worn to the class.


If you wish your child to take advantage of this opportunity then please complete the permission slip attached to the Judo letter.
