Kent Schools Judo Academy (The Academy)

The Academy seeks to provide increased opportunities to learn the fascinating and fun Olympic sport of judo by bringing the sport direct to schools and colleges, through curriculem based lessons and pre/after-school clubs.  Our very experienced and fully qualified coaches will deliver fun and educational classes for all ages and abilities and will supply all equipment necessary. 

Subject to availability, the Academy can run breakfast, lunch and after school clubs and provide judo classes as part of the school day..  

Education through judo


As well as the physical education side of practicing judo, we also discuss and touch upon the following subject areas during lessons;

  • Geogaphy (speaking about Japan and its culture also the various other countries we visit for international tournaments)

  • History (the history of the sport itself)

  • Language (using Japanese terminology in all lessons and looking at some Japanese symbols and writing)

  • Science (the science of body mechanics and exercise and how the body moves performs)  


For Primary Schools looking to increase participation in sport, our classes are a cost-effective way to engage children in a fun Olympic sport by using your PRIMARY PE and SPORT PREMIUM funding.  Find out more by following the link.
