Our workshop is dedicated to creating a welcoming and supportive environment where children and coaches can explore the art of Judo while developing important life skills that will translate to on and off-the-mat success. With a strong focus on skill development, learning, and drilling, our program is perfect for young judoka and coaches looking to advance their Judo abilities.
