Beach Judo – Get out of the Dojo!

Beach Judo – Get out of the Dojo!

This summer, we’d love you to get out of the Dojo and onto the beach to show off your Judo.

How can JudoNSW help?

Well, here’s a few things we can do:

  1. Promote your Beach Judo session: If your club already does beach Judo – tell us where, and when, in the comments below.
  2. Help your club with Tips for Beach Judo (see below)
  3. Give a prize to the best Beach Judo photo posted on Instagram – and Facebook. (To be Announced).

Why do Beach Judo?

Well, its simple.

  • Taking your club to the beach promotes Judo to everyone on the beach
  • Everyone on the beach gets to see how Judo builds healthy bodies and physiques.
  • It’s a fun day that builds club spirit and changes things up a bit.

Tips for Beach Judo – it’s not complicated…

  • Don’t make your coach organise it – they’ve got enough to do already. YOU organise it!
  • Bring suncreen and towels and bathers (duh)
  • Make sure you warm up.
  • Take pictures, and post them on Instagram and Facebook.
  • Bring some club leaflets for any interested bystanders
  • Make sure you have fun…..
