Judo Jim and his academies are the continuation of an award winning Judo Club structured as a way to encourage children and adults alike from the age of 5 years and up to take part in the Olympic Sport of Judo, in a safe, friendly and enjoyable environment. Judo Jim and his Academies like to deliver the sport of Judo that fosters the ethos of Judo "The Gentle Way" whilst also capturing the imagination of his pupils to carry on some of the main principles of Judo into their later lives; Respect, Discipline and Courtesy to those around them.
Our Home Academy is the first Judo club nationally to achieve the national Club Mark Award under its new criteria of the British Judo Association (BJA): we are also an award winning club. In addition, we are the first Martial Arts/Judo Club to become members of the Kent Children's University where we are approved to validate pupils passports. Moreover, we also have awarding winning members of our coaching team. All of our club Coaches are qualified to teach Judo and are also holders of enhanced DBS certificates and First Aid qualified.
At Judo Jims Academies we promote a safe and enjoyable environment for all junior Judoka who step onto the mat. In every lesson we aim for the Judoka to not only learn the sport of Judo, but also come away from the session with increased knowledge and understanding of the key mantles of Judo; Respect, Discipline and Courtesy to Others and Themselves.
