My child would like to join – how can I know the KPJC is the right club for us?

All the coaches at KPJC are firstly CRB checked. This means that as a parent, you can have complete peace of mind that you are entrusting your child to a safe and friendly environment.

Children are also sometimes taught by other junior players as well as coaches at the club. High achieving junior players enjoy helping their peers learn the sport and master moves that they themselves once struggled with. This means that learning is fun and progress is made at that individual child’s speed.

Parents are also always welcome to stay for the odd session, to watch their child train and see their progress.

KPJC boasts the largest contingent of women players in the county. Judo is a sport for male and female players and the friendly, welcoming and supportive teams ensure that who ever you are, you will feel part of the team and supported all the way to achieving your goals.
