Pro Judo- JUDO CLUB.


Pro Judo- JUDO CLUB.


Fantastic trial Offer for all pupils across the Woodfarm Cluster.

Schools have recently received some Judo taster sessions from Pro Judo Head Coach, Brian Long. The idea of taster sessions within schools is to give children an opportunity to experience a new sports/activity that they may have not participated in locally. The children really enjoyed the judo session and were enthusiastic about the prospect of joining a judo club in East Renfrewshire. Pro Judo has been established since 2006, with 19 clubs across the West of Scotland it is the largest judo provider in Schools.  All coaches are fully qualified and the organisation has a pathway in place to progress children from grass roots to performance athletes.

After the recent taster sessions in schools and enjoyment of the children, Pro Judo are looking to offer pupils the chance to take part in a 4 week trial offer of Judo at one of their classes.

There are a number of clubs running across East Renfrewshire. The closest classes to your school are below.
