Judo - Isle of Man

“Judo is the way to the most effective use of both physical and spiritual strength.
By training you in attacks and defenses it refines your body and your soul and
helps you make the spiritual essence of judo a part of your very being. In this
way you are able to perfect yourself and contribute something of value to the
world. This is final goal of judo discipline.”

Basic Kayak Safety

To assist paddlers make informed decisions about their personal sea kayaking trips on the Isle of Man.
Key Message from the RNLI:

Check wind, weather and tides.
Check kit, Check energy levels, Check ability.
Wear a Buoyancy Aid and dress appropriately.
Paddle in company and tell someone where you are going.
Carry a means of calling for help / communicating a delay.
Get training if required.

In a situation – stay with your craft. It’s much easier to spot a kayak than a head in the water.

Preparation & Local Knowledge is Key

“It’s your attitude and understanding that make you safe”

Kayaks are only as safe as the paddler in them. Taking risks responsibly will allow you to enjoy many more years of sea kayaking.
