Aylesbury Vale Judo Club is celebrating its new name and venue by hosting an Open Afternoon on October 28 where visitors can try on a kit and have a go at the Olympic sport.
AVJC, formerly known as Bierton Judo Club, is looking to attract more and more young people to give judo a try.
Club coach Emma Woodage says the sport not only channels energy but can also help improve a child’s behaviour.
“For children and teenagers judo channels energy and misbehaviour issues,”
“We have a clear grading system to provide structure, focus and a pathway, with the opportunity to compete for players who wish to.
“We emphasise discipline, self-control and good sportsmanship.”
The club trains on Sunday afternoons at the Alfred Rose Centre in Elmhurst. Ages start from five and the first lesson is free.
