Judo Girls Rock

Judo Girls Rock

Judo Girls Rock (The Female Participation Judo programme) is designed to engage with young females – a group underrepresented within our programmes of physical activity as well as on a national scale. Scotland suffers from poor health statistics; around 30% of girls aged 2-15 years are overweight or obese. Female participation rates are poor and research has highlighted that only 41% of girls aged 13-15 in Scotland meet the target of an hour’s physical activity a day.

Encouraging a healthy lifestyle.

want to be active, take part in physical activity and remain healthy. The sessions, developed from an award-winning pilot, focus on physical movement similar to dance, introducing judo gradually to maximize buy-in.
JudoScotland wants to create opportunities and encourage females to participate in the sport of Judo by considering what will inspire them to enjoy our sport. With this approach, we aim to enhance the level of participation of girls in Judo throughout the whole of Scotland, including the development of female coaches.
