Founder and Sensei Alan Scott
Alan Scott the founder of A.S. Judo has built a club using British champion Judo instructors to teach children in schools. The club began from a single class at Gateway school of 40 pupils 10 years ago to over a 1000 students in more than 50 schools. After an impressive Judo career, Alan was keen to create his own dojo where he could mentor children from 6 years old, nurture them to become not just judo athletes but individuals with discipline, respect for their opponents and the self belief to succeed. Having competed so successfully at British and International level he wanted to create a Judo coaching model which was highly professional, effective and fun. He insisted on building a team of Champion coaches who like himself had won medals, competed internationally and understood what it takes to succeed. At the 10 year Anniversary of A.S Judo club Alan feels fortunate to have such a high calibre, dedicated team of instructors. Champions in their own right who know how best to teach Judo to be both effective and enjoyable. Alan’s mission for A.S Judo is to provide the best training for children to develop Judo skills in a safe environment in which, they feel comfortable, make friends and gain self confidence. He will continue to extend the list of schools A.S Judo teaches in and maybe one day have some of his students picking up international medals for themselves
