FOCUS JUDO will be holding taster sessions for primary school kids at the Focus Centre in Galashiels today and tomorrow.
These sessions are organised through the Active Schools Programme and will be the children’s gym class for that day.
The club has a healthy children’s section of around 60 and an increasingly well-attended adult class. This is the first time that local schools have visited the club and this will hopefully be a successful arrangement for future years.
The London Olympics and Paralympics has brought great publicity to judo in the UK with players from Team GB gaining a total of two silver medals and two bronze medals between them.
If your child is attending one of the taster sessions or if you would like to try judo yourself, you can find the club at www.focusjudo.org or www.facebook.com/focusjudo
