As we embrace the values of courtesy, honour and respect inherent in judo, it’s just as important for us to extend these principles beyond the dojo.

In this article, we detail ways in which our judoka, coaches and volunteers can help foster a sustainable approach to the sport.

By donating and buying pre-loved kits, you are helping reduce the amount of waste entering landfill, helping to shift towards a circular economy.


You can donate your Preloved Judo Kits to us or other charities. You can help reduce waste by giving your preloved kits to various charities:

Kit for All: Kit for All is about offering recycled and pre-loved sports kit to individuals and families who need it, for free. Why? To make sport and physical activity more accessible for more people and to help the environment.

Your Club: Many Clubs run their own donating schemes to help reduce the cost of participating in Judo, speak with your club to see what schemes they have in place.


Looking for a bargain or looking to make a bit of extra cash?

There is an ever-changing supply of preloved kits becoming available, some have never been worn. You can get a great deal or make a bit of extra money, all while closing the loop.

Your Club: May run or offer a buy/sell community, speak with your coach. If your club doesn’t run one already why not think about setting one to help close the loop and save money for your club members.

Facebook Marketplace: There are specific judo Facebook buy/sell/swap groups where you can buy and sell your Judo kits. Simply search, ask your club or take a look at Judo Buy/Sell/Donate And Swap UK.

Vinted: There are some great deals to be had on preloved Judo suits on Vinted, all with the added security of buying through reputable company.
