How old do you have to be to do judo?
Judo training can start at any age. BJA members range from 5 to 85.
The BJA Dan Grade Register has on record a man who started judo aged 54 and in 8 years achieved his 1st Dan black belt.
Juniors are not allowed to compete until they reach 8 years of age on the advice of the BJA medical commission.
A special non-competitive scheme, the Kano Club – is in place for 5 – 7 year olds.
