Our recently introduced special needs and inclusive classes were a winner
Due to the huge success of inclusive and special needs classes ran in 2023 with Head Coach Dave Quinn. United Judo have received the funding to run another years sessions. The sessions help individuals explore things from balance all the way through to communication building and confidence enhancement.
The classes are built on a inclusive model which allows each judoka to advance at their own pace whilst having the sport in a controlled safe environment.
If you’re looking for something to do which is safe and allows for personal growth, look no further – we’d love to see you down the club.
Due to the requirements of coaching and facilitating staff, please check before attending sessions by calling us directly.
