As a parent, you want to give your children an excellent grounding in physical conditioning and fitness. Many studies have shown that the benefits of judo and martial arts training for children are many. As a result, we feel that Judo is the ideal sport to begin to set your child on the road to both physical and mental well-being.
Team sports can build character and physical conditioning too, it’s true, but Judo’s benefits extend far beyond those issues and the key lies in the nature of Judo itself.
Judo works on the principle of maximum effect with minimum effort – it’s also called ‘the gentle way’. Far from encouraging aggression, it encourages control. The key to Judo involves adjusting to your opponent rather than attacking; it’s about evading and changing the balance of a conflict.

Bully Prevention Techniques
Bullying and how to avoid conflict are important issues that your child may face on a daily basis in school and beyond. Judo training will give them the skills and self-confidence they need to handle those situations effectively. It’s one of the best ways to ‘bully proof’ your child.
