We recognise that schools aim to provide children with as many opportunities as possible to help them develop and become the very best that they can be. Moberly Judo Club has developed an extra-curricular programme that can be used to support this development and deepen children’s experiences.
It is evident that discipline and the sense of achievement children experience in engaging in Judo activities maintains a focus that can sometimes be rarely displayed in the classroom and is a great benefit to each student as it enhances their learning, social and emotional behaviour, fostering a positive attitude in all they do in a variety of settings. This sense of achievement also manifests itself in a deep respect for the sport and builds self-esteem, self-respect and respect for others. At Moberly, we pride ourselves on providing a strong anti-bullying philosophy. We believe that Judo enhances social interactivity and a feeling of inner strength and self-worth that has a positive effect on the more withdrawn individuals who may attract unwanted attention. Judo helps boisterous children channel their energy, providing a platform to gain confidence and positive recognition.
