Why Choose Judo?

When choosing a new sport there can sometimes feel like too many options. Whether your goal is to increase fitness, improve physical literacy or simply just to become more active, then Judo could be the sport for you. A truly inclusive sport Judo really is a sport for all,  but there is more to Judo than just an Olympic sport:

  • Based on a ‘Moral Code’ of courtesy, courage, honesty, honour, modesty, self-control, friendship and respect;
  • Great for fun and fitness at any age;
  • Teaches physical literacy and the ability to fall safely;
  • A grading system designed to develop skills for all aspects of life;
  • Make friends for life as part of a welcoming community.
