We are a family orientated organisation, providing quality Judo lessons to boys and girls from the age of 5. The lessons cater for all levels and abilities, and provide sound fundamental coaching principles that can transcend most sports.
One of the aims of our Academies is to offer an affordable and diverse activity to both schools and school children that may not be available in their area. The success of this and other projects of its kind are in the provision of the activity within the educational boundary of the school; where parents, teachers and children are familiar and comfortable in the surroundings.
Each Academy introduces students to the fundamentals of Judo through the Judo Academy ‘Star Award’ scheme. This is a certificate-based scheme in conjunction with the N.I. Judo Federation and Irish Judo Association grading scheme.
We follow a strict technique based grading system. Each level of grade is unique and is significant in the student's progress. The students will be assessed individually and in the group. Students may also be assessed by external assessors/coaches.
For students that wish to enter the competition arena, THE JUDO ACADEMY has direct links and access to all local and national competitions. We can also provide a direct pathway from our clubs to the NI and Ireland Judo squads.
