About Judo Kids

The Under 8 Development Scheme is a new nine-step process comprising of nine award levels designed to help coaches reward young players while they develop their fundamental physical, technical, social and psychological skills before moving on to the Mon Grading Scheme at 8 years of age.

Coaches working with young players in the 5 – 7 age group who are already using the Mon Grading Scheme, can either continue with them on this scheme or move them to the relevant award depending on their experience and ability.

Judo Kids focuses on fun packed activities to develop the child’s fundamental skills, judo specific techniques, breakfalls and social skills.

Based on Professor Jigaro Kano, the Japanese’ founder of judo’s philosophy, the coach should work with the child to develop the following life values:

  • Fair Play
  • Respect
  • Friendship
  • Responsibility
  • Knowledge
  • Discipline
