Groundwork judo is fun and an easy way to score a judo ippon! 

But many kids get stuck at the first hurdle of not knowing how to turn their partner over. 

This book will make sure you never have that problem again:


★★★★★ Review by Deryn (aged 15) A really clever book. Brilliant for children and young adults of all abilities to help aid their learning and skills. Great to be able to take away from the club and revise at home. Brilliant illustrations ideal for younger learners as they can associate with the little characters. Loved the idea of being able to connect the book to the working aids online. Think adults especially parents and coaches could also benefit from using these books in their clubs with the children/young people and also adaptive/additional needs players as well. Care has been taken in the way the books are focused and written in order to engage their reader.

What does this book teach you?

By the end of this book you will have learnt twenty turn overs. 

You will be able to turn your partner over from any defence.

You will have all the skills you need to win many contests using newaza.

Groundwork is often neglected, which is a big mistake.

Because of this simple, universal fact: Judoka don’t float! Sooner or later every contest ends up in newaza. Get good at it!

This book will make you very, very good at groundwork.
