The Fighting Chance Project is a new and effective way of positively influencing the lives of disadvantaged young people, reducing anti-social behaviour in the community, positively effecting change in the lives of the young participants and increasing the number of young people participating in the sport of Judo.
Each Fighting Chance Project will select young people from a list of referrals made by the programme partner organisations who engage in anti-social behaviour in the community, and or is in danger of being excluded or already has been excluded from education and/or displays low self confidence.
Each participant will receive a free Gi (Judo suit) and membership to the British Judo Association. The young people will then learn all about the respect, discipline and spirit of Judo as well as the basic techniques of the sport up to a yellow belt standard.
Please note that this activity requires a referral from a practitioner working with the young person.
