Just a few days before the English Judo team travelled to Birmingham to compete in the 2022 Commonwealth Games, Low Wood Bay Watersports hosted Team England’s Judo squad for a day of canoeing, team building, friendly competition and fun.

Team England Judo Squad visits Low Wood Bay
As guests of Kendal Judo Club, the 14-strong English Judo team booked into Low Wood Bay Watersports Centre to try their hand at canoeing on Lake Windermere. A perfect Lake District location for fitness training, team building, and conference down time.
Judo - The Gentle Way
Judo, literally translated ‘the gentle way’, is an unarmed Japanese martial art. As a world competitive sport, Judo has experienced slow progress at times, despite being around since the mid-1800s in Japan. It was adopted into the Olympic Games, men only, in 1964. The women joined the 1988 Olympics as a demonstration event and then in 1992 they were allowed to complete as a medal event.
In terms of the Commonwealth Games, it has been classified an optional sport since the 1990 games. But this year, for the first time, Judo has been classified as a core sport.
We wish the England team every success as they compete in Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.
