At Kingsley, we have our own specialist judo coach, Mr Ward, and our teams regularly travel around the country for competitions at weekends. Why? Judo is known as a sport which helps athletes develop good stamina and fitness, combined with enhancing children’s self-confidence and relieving stress.

Today, Mr Ward, along with Sandra Klinger (Delivery Officer for the South West from the British Judo Association), welcomed children from Westcroft, Woolsery and St Mary’s to join Kingsley students on the mats, cajoling and encouraging everyone to try to execute a perfectly controlled throw with their opponent landing safely.
