Following the success of our first Keizoku in 2022 we are delighted to bring this event back for our members this November! 

Keizoku is an innovative event open to Judoka aged 5 – 12 years who are looking to take the first (or even second) step outside the club environment. Supporting the continuous development of young Scottish Judoka, this event provides fun off the mat challenges and offers maximum time on the mat to apply their Judo skills.


Keizoku introduces subtle changes to the traditional judo event to provide a more ‘age and stage’ appropriate environment in line with the JudoScotland Player Development Framework so that young judoka can enjoy the thrill of competing, the challenge of doing their best and the enjoyment of sport. As an introductory event, Judoka can wear any colour of Gi to take part as they experience the wider world of Judo.


Here is what the parents of last year’s attendees had to say:


“From arriving until we left it was fantastic, the kids were kept busy right from the start all staff/helpers were amazing with the kids. It was a very productive morning, and my son had a fab time. He especially liked doing all the little events like the plank lights and it was lovely how the kids all made friends from other clubs in their groups. Well done!”


“Lots of fun for the kids in a friendly and relaxed environment”


“Very fun for kids, great venue, fun warmup. It was great they got a lot of mat time. Not too much pressure for the kids.”


“The event felt like a family affair, it was very well organised, sign posted, and we were kept up to date throughout the day of the scheduled events, we had a fabulous day and will definitely be at the next event!”


This event is aimed at Judoka in the sampling stage that are looking to take the next step out of the club environment. This festival is designed with the child’s stage in mind providing fun on and off-the-mat challenges to develop their technical, physical and behavioural abilities. If you are unsure, it is suitable for you, please speak to your coach.
