A Judo academy started up in January

A Judo club led by a teacher with more than thirty years experience is inviting young people to come along and practice the martial art.

Held at the community room in Asda Gravesend, Judo Jim’s Judo Academy invites children aged up to 16 attend the classes.

James Winter-Nolan, who runs the classes said: “Everyone is invited to come along and learn, we wanted to take advantage of the community room being opened in Gravesend so local children can learn about this great Olympic sport.

“Hopefully we can continue to keep the London Olympic legacy alive as well as the 2020 Olympics being in Japan, the home of Judo.”

Each lesson costs £5 per child, and run for an hour.

Classes for primary school students run every Tuesday between 5.30pm and 6.30pm, with older children up to 16 years old invited to come along between 6.40pm and 7.40pm.
