Special classes for children

At our club we have special classes for Judo, beginning with the above core principles which are the foundation of our school. They often ask us which is the right age for my child to attend? Our reply… The moment our added values will help for a better child development, around the age of five or six years old.

Judo Philosophy and Cyprus Judo Culture

Judo means the “Gentle Way” in Japanese. “Maximum Efficiency with Minimum Effort,” and “Mutual Welfare and Benefit for All” are important components of the judo philosophy. In Cyprus, as in all other countries, Judo has a strict set of rules that governs competition and ensures safety. For those who want to test their skills, Judo offers the opportunity for competition at all skill levels, from club to national tournaments, to the Olympic Games. There are separate weight divisions for men and women, and boys and girls which are applied in Cyprus governed by IJF (International Judo Federation).

Our Principles

Our club maintains high values with regards to self-discipline and respect for oneself and others. Judo provides the means for learning self-confidence, concentration, and physical coordination, power, and flexibility. As a sport that has evolved from a fighting art, it develops complete body control, fine balance, and fast reflexive action. Above all, we develop a sharp reacting mind well-coordinated with the same kind of body. Judo training gives a person an effective self-defense system if the need arises.

"Our greatest glory consists not in never failing, but in rising every time we fall"

  • Free lessons!

Every child or new athlete is entitled to try a class with us for three times in order to ensure that the sport is right for him/her.

We would love to hear from you
