On Thursday the 3rd October Mrs Hall’s husband Mr Hall and their son Joe come in to our school to teach Year 6 all about judo, down in the sports hall. Our topic this term is the Rugby World Cup which is being hosted in Japan, and judo is one of the martial arts that comes from there.
We were split up into different groups and began by learning about the respect of the sport, and we also explored it’s history, and learned many interesting facts. We also found out how to say start and finish in Japanese!
We all enjoyed using the judo techniques and learned how to judo drop someone and grapple which was really fun. It was a really good way to exercise, and we all enjoyed the experience and would love to take part again.
