Judo is an education for life promoting fairplay, respect for others, good hygiene, self-discipline and friendship. Judo is a great sport for all ages, from the very beginning participants learn about elements of the Japanese culture and the history of the sport.  Often you see increased confidence in those children that once lacked confidence and self-esteem.  In addition, Judo is truly a sport for all. Anyone can achieve aslong as they study and train hard.

It’s especially beneficial for children, improving:

  • Fitness, flexibility and strength
  • Co-ordination
  • Respect for others
  • Self-confidence
  • Discipline and behaviour.

SSJC has over 110 junior members (November 2011) from the age of five years upwards and always welcomes new members.  As you can see, SSJC is quite a family orientated Judo club being managed by families for the development and promotion of Judo in a safe and controlled environment.
