A fantastic resource!

“Koka Kids has proved a fantastic resource within both my club and school judo lessons. When I asked a 5 year old to demo Yamarashi and he asks “which one? The standard grip or Illiadis one?” Then, I know Koka Kids has done a good job! 

Mark Fricker, 6th Dan, Pinewood Judo Club
