In 2018 Kim became ambassador of this Dutch program for children. Schooljudo is an approved program by the International Judo Federation and wants to contribute to a better society throughout the world. Judo is a perfect sport to add social and educational skills to the youngsters, which will be passed on towards friends, family and local society. This way judo doesn't only contribute in physical way but also at the social and educational level.
"I can recommend every elementary school to start with Schooljudo. Not only because I know what judo could give to you, such as getting (more) self-confidence and develop yourself physically, but also because the interesting part about Schooljudo is that it is much more than just judo. Schooljudo can tie in with the (anti-bullying) policy that every primary school has and can be used as a supplement to let children develop socio-emotionally.
Also interesting: through an elaborate and interactive learning line, in which even well-known Disney characters and videos are being used, the teacher can bring Schooljudo also into the classroom. All this together makes that I, as a judoka and as a primary school teacher, recommend Schooljudo."

Kim Polling is one of the best judoka’s in the world. In her weight category -70 kg she has been from 2013 to 2017 for four years the World Ranking Leader. After the 2016 Olympic Games Kim took a break to recover from injuries and to graduate from university. After one year of absence she made a successful comeback by winning amongst others the Grand Prix The Hague.
Shortly after Kim won her fourth European title in 2018, she was discovered to have a hernia for which she needed surgery. Early 2019 she will make her return at the competition area and then she can continue with preparing herself for participating in her second Olympic Games. In the next years Kim still has a lot of goals, but the most important is the one to win the only two tournaments she has not yet won at senior level: the World Championships and the Olympic Games.
