Judo is a fantastic sport for boys and girls and Sportif Judo is a great place to start. I started as a beginner with Sportif when I was seven years old, in a small village hall club. Little did I know 10 years later I would become a fulltime judo athlete representing Scotland and Great Britain at tournaments around the World. Sportif is my judo family
I have seen my son come on in so many ways in the 5 years he has been doing Judo. He is 11 yrs old now and his personal as well as sporting development have been phenomenal, as is the case with all the other players both male and female that attend these sessions. I coach rugby at P7 but this is another level again in comparison. It promotes discipline and respect and the Sportif coaches strive to get the best out of every individual child. I would thoroughly recommend!!
Judo is much more than an Olympic sport or an art of self-defence. Judo is one of the best ways to shape positive character and physical form for a lifetime. I have worked with and strongly recommend the Sportif Judo program for children, young adults and adults looking for the very best training through Judo with ambitions to succeed in life
We have three girls at Sportif Judo Darcy aged 10, Ellie aged 8 and Quinn aged 5. All three girls really enjoy judo and love going to the club. As parents we can see that Sportif is a special club, there is a fantastic team spirit, with a very high ratio of girls in the club. The older players always make time for the younger players and are the perfect role models Our experience at Sportif Judo has been very positive.
Sportif judo has not only provided consistent excellence in judo coaching, but they have managed to take individual athletes and create a big team with congruent values of respect, integrity and honour. This is invaluable for success both on and off the judo mat.
