I am a former Olympic judo athlete and now a coach with a post-graduate diploma in sport coaching. Whatever your background I can help you improve your technique and level whether it be for competition or just self development. I provide both video and written lessons and video analysis.
As a coach I have coached complete beginners and elite athletes. I have helped a number of older athletes gain their grades and competition success and taken younger athletes from complete beginners to national competition level. I provide a complete training programme as well as mentoring.

Sophie has been my judo coach for around 4 years now. She has taken a un-experienced beginner and taken me from white to brown belt (and hopefully black soon). She's also helped me to become a level 1 Judo coach.
She's also incredibly skilled in Judo for BJJ and MMA and has support my BJJ takedown game since day one. She has helped me achieve numerous IBJJF medals including a World Masters title in 2016.
As a coach she can adapt sessions to meet your own personal needs and will move totally at your pace. I seriously recommend anyone thinking of taking a session or class with Sophie to give it a go!
