Summit Judo Club has over 30 years of history, originally
operating from John Hunt of Everest School we have since relocated to
Sherborne-St-John and become the largest judo club in the Basingstoke area.
This was achieved by offering a great balance of fun and serious learning
Being a martial art and Olympic sport, judo is both a
great form of physical and mental education. In addition to the obvious
benefits of flexibility, balance, and co-ordination, the core principles of
judo build life skills through self-discipline and teamwork giving a sense
of achievement and most importantly building confidence.
Progression is monitored through a structured grading
system. Individuals focus on developing their technique as they aim to
reach the next benchmark: their sense of achievement is acknowledged by a
recognisable series of coloured belts and stripes known as Mons.
