Destination @ British Judo

Destination@BritishJudo is one of British Judo's flagship development programmes aimed at encouraging young people to participate in judo. Judo is a great sport for building confidence and developing fundamental movement skills at the same time as being lots of fun. Schools can sign up for a qualified judo coach to visit to provide all Primary aged children with a quality judo experience and showcase a pathway into a local club setting. Judo is a sport that provides health, physical and cognitive benefits, while enabling young people to realise their potential.

The word Judo consists of two Japanese characters, "Ju" which means gentle and "do" which means "the way". So Judo means the way of gentleness. Judo is a dynamic sport that does not rely on strength but is based on a combination of balance, co-ordination and reaction – all skills that help performance across other sports. Most importantly, judo helps children become more self-confident, disciplined, self controlled and polite.
