Welcome to the Premier School of Judo

Premier is run by a professional sports coach who works in a variety of schools and colleges, ranging from infants to comprehensive schools, delivering judo and self defence lessons. Pupils are then invited to attend club classes at the Hedge End Youth and Community Centre in Hedge End near Southampton or at the Lido Dojo in Worthy Lane, Winchester.

Although these days most pupils are drawn from local schools, we welcome any beginners who would like to have a go at this fine sport. We try to coach in a relaxed, friendly and informal manner while being aware of important safety and technical considerations. Whilst we have had contest success at county and regional level we will not put any pressure on any pupils,
who must progress at their own pace. This philosophy probably accounts for our high retention rates.
