2018 is the 6th year of running our highly successful Olympic Road Show in conjunction with “National Sports Week” with Two Times GB Olympian and Bronze Commonwealth Medalist for Judo’s Sophie Cox.
Chief Instructor Richard said that this year was fantastic working with Sophie again, it’s a pleasure to be thrown around all day by such an elite Martial Artist and good friend, a big thank you Sophie! It’s our 6th year delivering our annual Olympic Road Show and every time it gets better. Richard would like to thank all the schools, staff and children that took part for making it such a memorable and successful experience. Richard added that he feels incredibly lucky and humbled to have made his passion for Martial Arts apart of his daily life and doesn’t consider it to be work but a privilege to teach to children of all ages and back grounds . We look forward to seeing old and new friends again next year.

We had some great feedback from our students:
During the summer term we will be delivering our very exciting Olympic Roadshow for the third year running. I feel that this would undoubtedly add value to your national school sports week in June with London and Athens GB Olympian and current 7 time British Judo Champion, Sophie Cox. In addition to this, we feel through feedback from other schools that we work with, that this event adds great value towards the SMSC element of the OFSTED inspection through the school development plan.
Sophie is a member of the Sky Sports Team, British Judo Coaching Team, Athlete Mentor for The Youth Trust, Sporting Champion Mentor and Dame Kelly Holmes Trust Mentor to name but a few. We are very proud to say the Sophie supports our Little Dragon’s Martial Arts Around The World Syllabus and is a valued member of our team and personal friend of mine.
Each lesson plan and training session will take around 45 minutes per class. All children and staff will have the opportunity to train and meet with Sophie. Each class will have a group photo with Sophie and have the opportunity to wear one of Sophie’s 300 plus medals which include Gold, Sliver and Bronze from around the world. Each Child will receive an autograph and certificate stating that they trained with Sophie, something they can keep and treasure for life.
Each group will also have a question and answer session at the end of the class.
Please do not hesitate to contact me regarding any of the above and I will be happy to help.
