  • Ask permission from a coach before leaving the mat
  • Tidy away your mess (drink bottles, sweet wrappers etc)
  • Visit the toilet BEFORE the class begins
  • No whistling on the mat
  • No talking whilst the coach addresses the class
  • You must not arrive or leave the dojo in your Judogi

Safety and Hygiene

  • Players must have a valid, in date Judo Licence.
  • Footwear must be worn off the mat.
  • Hands and feet should be cleaned before the class.
  • Judo Suits (Gi's) must be clean at the beginning of a class.
  • Jewellery/watches to be removed before a class.
  • Long hair must be tied back.
  • Players need to have short finger and toe nails.
  • No hard or sharp objects to be worn (hair clips, metal pads in hair bands)

The Gentle Way

Judo develops self-discipline and respect for oneself and others. It provides the means for learning self-confidence, improving concentration and leadership skills, as well as developing physical coordination, strength, power, and flexibility

Become a Judoka

Judo develops complete body control, fine balance, and fast reflexive action. Above all, it develops a sharp reacting mind well-coordinated with the same kind of body. Judo training also gives a person an effective self-defence system if the need arises.
