. the learning grove sponsor Patchway Judo Club - Patchway is the first judo club in South Gloucestershire and Bristol County to achieve the British Judo Silver Club Mark award, & the 2nd in the whole of the Western area!

Patchway Players, from Novice to 3rd Dan.

Yokoso (Welcome!)...

Prof Jigoro Kano

Patchway Judo club prides itself on being a family club.

The club provides the opportunity for young people and adults to make new friends and keep active in a fun and safe environment. Best of all, family & friends of judo players are welcome to take part in all of the club activities & events.

The club was only the second in the whole of the South West to achieve Silver Clubmark award.

One of the secrets of our sucess is that the coaches have come through the club as players over the years. Our club aim is to help young people & adults to learn judo, build self confidence, self esteem & improve co-ordination and ultimately be the "best they can be".

Patchway Judo club is committed to helping children reach their full potential, whether they are competitive or recreational players, whatever their ability; ultimately, to become happy confident young people!

 

Professor Jigoro Kano, the founder of Judo said, "Judo is a teaching for life itself and with it we learn to overcome the pitfalls and obstacles of everyday living" and his words still ring true. A man of great vision, Kano summed up Judo by saying "it is the way to most efficiently use one's mental and physical strength. By training, one should discipline and cultivate the body and spirit through the practice of techniques of offence and defence, thereby to master the essence of Judo. And, by these means, it is the ultimate goal of Judo to build oneself up to perfection and thereby benefit the world."
