Judo at Burton Manor consists of a range of classes aimed at taking both
junior and senior members from beginner to black belt. We are a friendly
club that aims to make learning Judo both fun and effective. Our training
dojo is purpose built and consists of a high quality, permanent mat.
Judo training is an ideal form of physical exercise and it serves as a great
cardiovascular workout, which improves stamina, general health and overall
fitness. Physical strength is also improved as a direct result of trying to
control and dictate the movement of the opponent and as well as enhanced
power; a Judo player will also improve their flexibility. For the same
reasons the balance and posture of a player will also be enhanced. Physical
co-ordination can be seen to develop dramatically from participation in Judo
and reflexes are also improved together with mental reaction time.
Confidence and self-esteem are enhanced as a player progresses through the
ranks and the very nature of the grading system ensures that the next goal
is always realistic and achievable with effort. The grading system also
ensures that regardless of their skill level all Judo players can actively
compete with players of similar ability and hence they have a reasonable
chance of emerging victorious.
Judo is an ideal sport for all ages, males or females. Our youngest members
are 6, while the oldest is 106 (although he claims less). We maintain a
supply of junior jackets/belts at our dojo in order that new members can
experience Judo without that initial expense.
