JudoJudo is principally about you and your opponent. There is no equipment apart from your partner, so treat your partner with respect! Judo exercises the whole body. These days, judo is heavily influenced by modern competition rules and therefore has a strong technical element. Judo is more than just physical exercise: it is also a philosophy for personal development. The two basic principles in judo are: 1. mutual help and understanding with the aim of both judoka feeling good and making progress, and 2. the best possible use of body and mind. The aim is for these principles to shape your whole attitude, and for you to make them come alive in every move you make on the judo mat. We endeavour to incorporate classical judo values such as respect, self-control and friendship into our varied programme of physical training.There are two groups: one for students aged 5-6, and one for older students. The first group offers an introduction to judo, as children of this age do not yet have some of the required motor skills and first have to learn them. Proper judo training can begin at about age 7. With our weekly classes we try to provide an introduction to the sport of judo. We have two Judo groups: One for students aged 5-6, this course offers an introduction to judo. Group two is for age 7 plus where real Judo tuition beginns. Both groups learn two basic principles in judo: mutual help and understanding with the aim that both judoka enjoy the training and progress in their abilities, and also the best possible use of body and mind.

LR PE / Learning readinessLRPE is an early morning exercise session for students to wake up their brains and prepare for the academics of the school day. Research has shown that after elvating the heart rate for 20mins or more the brain produces hormones as GABA and BDNF which facilitate better memory retention, problem-solving skills, and cognitive functions thus preparing the students for difficult subjects during the day. Evidence has been found that an exercise session in the morning is more effective than an hour of tutoring, and it benefits the cardiovascular health at the same time! The exercises done during these sessions vary from yoga to adventure type climbing, swinging and jumping to team sports, fitness related exercises and exercises to stimulate the connection between the two brain halves.
