Discover Judo For Yourself

Join us for a free, no obligation, taster session to see what its all about.


As a club, we have been running since 2001 and have taught Judo to people of all ages ranging from 6 to 60. We create a stress free and safe environment where Judo can be learn’t, developed and enjoyed by everyone.

Our club is governed by the British Judo Council (Martial Arts Circle) which was formed in 1968 by Mr. Kenshiro Abbe, 8th Dan Judo and a 6th or 7th Dan in many other Japanese martial arts. Mr. Abbe, the son of a Kendo master (Japanese Swordsman), trained at the Butokukai in Kyoto which, was the main rival of and usually the victor over, the Kodokan in Tokyo. He won the then equivalent of the Open Weight at the World Championship, the All Japan Championship, three times. To this day, Mr. Abbe’s teachings live on through the generations of students that have followed since.
