What's the benefits of learning Judo?

The practice of Judo fosters a strong sense of confidence, teaching women how to leverage their strength effectively, regardless of their opponent’s size. This confidence transcends the dojo, equipping them with the courage to face life’s challenges with poise and determination. Moreover, Judo’s focus on balance, flexibility, and coordination enhances overall physical health and well-being. Beyond the physical and psychological benefits, Judo cultivates a supportive community where women can connect, share experiences, and support one another in their journey. In essence, Judo offers women a holistic approach to wellness, empowering them to lead healthier, more confident lives. Put simply Judo can be great for:

Physical Fitness

Mental Fitness

Self Defence


Stress release

Is Judo safe?

Judo is designed with safety and respect at its core, making it an exceptionally safe martial art for everyone to try. Its foundational principles—maximum efficiency with minimum effort and mutual welfare and benefit—ensure that practices and sparring sessions emphasize safety, control, and cooperation. In Judo, techniques are taught progressively, with a strong focus on learning how to fall safely (ukemi) to minimize the risk of injury. This careful approach allows participants to build confidence gradually, understanding their own strengths and capabilities within a secure environment.

What do you need to get started?

To get started with the ladies-only session please attend on a Wednesday evening at our Bexley Dojo. We will supply you with a jacket and belt to borrow but please wear something comfortable like tracksuit bottoms or leggings. Jewelry is not permitted and hair is appropriately tied up above the collar to avoid accidental injury.

With United you get two weeks free of charge to try it out and see what you think with our most qualified coach Dave Quinn. Get in touch today to get started with Judo.

What is the session like?

Our session will include a light warm-up, general technical practice and short free fighting time (randori). This is the perfect starter or club-level session if you are looking to try Judo. You can then continue to go to our higher-intensity nights as you grow in confidence if you would like to.

The class takes place at our brand-new Judo dojo, which holds Olympic depth mats on a sprung floor allowing you to fall continuously without injury. Additionally we will work on crash mats for technical standing throws, allowing you to really fall into your skill and build talents progressively.
