Take part in a practical workshop, run by a qualified British Judo Association Coach, Katrina McDonald, Anglia Ruskin University. You will be taught Ukemi which is a Japanese term meaning falling safely. You will be taught different safe falling principles and techniques depending on your age and ability.
