Judoka embark on the yellow belt challenge

It gives me great pleasure to announce that a dozen of our 6th form students have accepted the yellow belt challenge put to them by the British Judo Association. The Fighting Chance Project’s Yellow Belt Challenge is a British Judo partnered programme that works with grass roots community Judo clubs to engage young people from disadvantaged and vulnerable backgrounds.

The Fighting Chance Project believes that by introducing young people to the positive activity of judo, they can make new friends, learn new skills, earn grades and build greater levels of confidence. This can help them go on to achieve greater levels of success in other aspects of their lives. Our students will learn how to throw opponents using different techniques in the Judo syllabus as well as learning how to land properly so as not to hurt themselves when landing.

Whilst practising Judo our students will also build self – confidence, trust, self-discipline and respect for themselves and others.
