Searching for after school activities can be daunting, but it doesn’t have to be.
Judo, which is a Japanese martial art that literally means, “the way of gentleness” after combining the “ju”and “do.” The sport utilizes both the mind and body and provides ideal training for children and adults of all ages. For children that require physical training, full body movement, appreciate respect for a sport and need to work on concentration, Judo is the ideal sport.
We can highly recommend Judo Schule Nippon in Basel. We have spent years at the club and appreciate all the school has to offer. With highly trained teachers that work extremely well with children of all levels/ages, this school is professional, fun and dedicated to the sport.
Oh, and mark your calendars for World Judo Day, which is celebrate on the 28th of October.
