The British Judo Association, the National Governing Body for the Olympic and Paralympic sport of judo in Great Britain launched an exciting partnership with Tottenham Hotspur Foundation and Highlands School on Tuesday 23 October.
The partnership has been created to provide judo at the school for two days a week where it is delivered in both curriculum and extracurricular and the development of an after school club.
Olympic silver medallist Gemma Gibbons and Tottenham Hotspur defender Steven Caulker were on hand to meet and greet guests, sign autographs and also take part in a Q & A session with children from the school.
Enfield Judo Club product and former British international Siobhan O’Neil led a judo display of the programme featuring the pupils and young international judoka.
Through the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation judo is then provided at a variety of venues across the catchment of the foundation through Premier League 4sport programme and linked to their youth club network. British Judo then looks to promote the sport across the area as part of its wider engagement programme and feeding young people through to local clubs.
