About Tora-Kai School Of Judo

Tora-Kai Judo Club was formed in the early 70ís from the amalgamation of three judo clubs. They all had different names so a Japanese professor was asked to help suggest a name and Tora-Kai was chosen. Tora means tiger and in Japanese writing it actually looks like a tigerís tail and Kai means club.
Tora-Kai Judo Club meets to provide an opportunity for youngsters, between the ages of five and fifteen years & over to learn the art of Judo.
Emphasis on Fun
The aim of the club is to promote judo in as safe an environment as possible. Children are not pushed to the limits of their ability in order to produce Olympic Champions, but are encouraged in the art of Judo in a friendly and fun environment.
Lots of Benefits
The Judo club is not just about learning self-defence, it is also about directing energy into something creative and constructive, building up self-confidence, co-ordination and learning to work with a partner or as part of a team.

What We Do At Lessons
Lessons always start with warm-up exercises, which end with the essential practise of rolling break falls which are done in various forms. This is then followed by learning new techniques of holds and throws, both in theory and in practice they will also incorporate what has been learned in past lessons.
The children will then participate in a supervised game and at the end of each lesson there is always an opportunity for them to ask any questions they may have, be it on the history of judo, forthcoming events or queries regarding the lesson they have just had.
Competitions & Recognition of Progress
At the end of each term, a grading takes place over a two-week period. The children are tested on the theory and practical side of judo giving them the opportunity to progress to a higher level. The judo school records the results and all students will receive a certificate showing the level that has been achieved, giving parents the opportunity to see how their child is progressing.
A new judo belt will also be given if their belt colour has changed. The following week after a grading, an inter-class competition is held. This gives children of similar age and ability the chance to compete against each other, opposing their individual skills, but all united in the spirit of judo.

Inclusive Judo Classes

Tora-Kai is delighted to be working with Elmbridge Borough Council to provide inclusive judo classes for children with a broad range of additional needs.
We hold these sessions on a monthly basis at Excel Leisure Centre in Walton and the response from the children and their carers participating in these sessions has been fantastic.
We are also working with Cleves and Walton Oak school for inclusive judo sessions. These were launched in May 2011 with the Mayor of Elmbridge and Councillor Jan Fuller in attendance.
