Today, we were lucky to have a taster session of Judo. As a class, we took part in a judo lesson in the hall. We practiced our agility with a fun game then we worked on our grip strength. Ian, the judo coach, then showed us how to flip the chip. We all got to have a go at flipping each other over.  We learned some of the traditions of judo which are rooted in respect for your opponent and the sport.

We all had so much fun!

Here are some quotes from the children:

“I can’t wait to start going to judo!”

“It is lots of fun!”

“I really like this sport”
