Through personalised coaching and interactive exercises, Remi helps you develop resilience, enhance your performance, and cultivate a positive mindset both on and off the mat.

Now, let’s talk logistics. How do you get access to Remi and this game-changing mental health tool? It’s simple. As a BJA adult member, all you need to do is click this unique download link or scan our QR code and then sign up through the InsideOut platform.Voila!

This partnership between the British Judo Association and InsideOut isn’t just about embracing innovation; it’s about prioritising the well-being of our judo community. Because when we take care of our mental health, we’re not just better athletes, we’re better humans.

So, whether you’re a seasoned judo warrior or just starting out, remember that it’s okay to not be okay sometimes. And with Remi by your side, you’re never alone in the fight both on the mat or in everyday life. Let’s continue to break barriers, on and off the mat, together.
