New ladies class

Girls participating in judo is crucial for various reasons, as it fosters physical and mental development while promoting gender equality and empowerment. Judo is not merely a sport; it is a discipline that cultivates strength, agility, and strategic thinking. When girls engage in judo, they enhance their physical fitness, coordination, and self-defence skills, contributing to overall well-being. Moreover, judo instils important values such as respect, discipline, and perseverance. By breaking traditional gender stereotypes associated with combat sports, girls in judo challenge societal norms and showcase that strength and athleticism are not exclusive to any gender.

Following the momentum of the Girls in Sport We Belong campaign we would like to announce a girls-only class coming soon to United Judo for any women looking to try the sport out.

If you don't ask, you don't get!

We’ve had some mums at the Judo club enquire about a woman-only class. The idea of rolling around the mat unexperienced with a bunch of men judoka within the regular senior class has not tickled their fancy. Here at United Judo, we strive for equality in all forms and think it’s an amazing idea and would love to offer a safe environment for these girls to train.

What will the ladies class look like?

To give these judokas an experience they can stick their teeth into we are looking to source a qualified woman coach. The session will last either an hour or hour and a half to give the judoka maximum time to warm up and get a thorough understanding of everything taught in a non-pressurised environment.

Planning ahead

Like most individual sports a practice requires numbers for people to practice with others appropriately. If we know how many women are interested we can tailor the class better, perhaps even bringing on a second coach too.

Please register your interest with us so we have a rough idea of the numbers. Drop us a message today!
