You can choose to learn judo as a sport, or as a martial art. You can train for competition, for personal development, for fitness and health, for cross-training purposes or for all of the above. Studying judo enables you, the participant, to learn about yourself, a culture and a way of life. Judo training is a great way to keep fit whilst learning new skills. Judo improves: balance, strength, power, co-ordination, flexibility, core strength, aerobic and anaerobic capacity. This in turn improves other lifestyle factors such as physical and mental well-being.

The instruction at Judo4All is there to make this fascinating martial art appealing to everyone. Sophie offers high quality training to individuals and groups based on her 20 years of experience in the sport. She is in the unique position of being able to tailor the training environment to a variety of needs. She also provides strength and conditioning and lifestyle programs.
