This has consisted mainly of “seeing what we have to work with”. The students have performed basic field tests including Press-up, Sit-Up test, Broad Jump test (left foot, right foot, double footed) and vertical jump test, the Bleep test where the results ranged from participants finishing between level 7 to level 12. We also completed the “special Judo Fitness Test”. You will find articles on this test on the internet and whilst it may not be perfect it does give the players a benchmark to work to with regards to how quick their recovery from judo activity is. We intend to repeat these tests every three months where hopefully we will see some improvement as fitness levels and judo ability increase.
