Because of the potentially dangerous nature of the sport, at KPJC strict discipline is essential and great importance is placed on safety, hygiene and etiquette.

Safety is controlled by the contest rules, which are constantly updated to exclude harmful actions – this allows judo to be practiced in a spirited manner without undue risk of harm or injury.

Hygiene is essential due to the close physical contact between players and judo etiquette instils respect, modesty, politeness and general social skills on all participants.


All the KPJC coaches are CRB checked and the club fully subscribes to the British Judo Association's Child Protection Policy.
