This class accommodates children who have done judo over a reasonable period of time. They have shown competency in doing various standing throws and groundwork manoeuvres. Crucially they can work with a partner safely and understand and the basics of falling. They are competent judoka. This class promotes judo on a movement basis instead of static. In short the movements and exercises are more dynamic and have a more ‘linked’ and progressive teaching pathway.
This class are my oldest age group and I adjust my teaching style to cater for them. This group will generally warm up via a circuit which will lead straight into judo fighting to prepare them for the session ahead. This group also practice Arm Locks and strangles and will again try and apply them within their fights.
