Sho grades

Sho grades are for ages 5 - 7 and are an excellent introduction for young ones into the world of judo.

As well as gently introducing judo techniques, the Sho grade system also looks to improve balance and aspects of fair play.

All of the information on the Sho system is covered at the great website by British Judo: We have provided links to some of the materials below, for your convenience.

Sho Grading Material

The material below covers what will be learned as part of the Sho grading syllabus. 

Whilst we encourage everyone to take an interest and understand what is required for their syllabus (and practise improving balance and learning translation etc) at home, practising the judo techniques themselves should only be done at the judo session under the watchful eye of a qualified coach.
