What is Judo?
Judo is a Japanese martial art and Olympic sport that involves grappling, throws, hold downs and submission techniques. That might make it sound a bit scary but we're a really friendly club with a range of members of all weights and grades! We have lots of new beginners every year, as well as plenty of training for more experienced competitive players.
Those interested in competing will have the opportunity to take part in BUCS but you are equally welcome to take it slow and enjoy the sport and regular socials. We also encourage anyone who is interested in learning self-defense. Don't be scared to come along and give it a go!
We hope to see you at training!
Our regular training times are the same, Monday 8:30 - 10pm and Thursday 7-8:30pm in the new studios. We also aim to have a range of socials throughout the term, both drinking and non-drinking. We often go to the North Terrace after training on a Thursday for a catch up off the mat.
No experience necessary, just turn up in gym kit or joggers and t shirt.
Judo costs £55 per term, which covers 9 weeks of sessions between the 27th of January and the 26th March and another week of sessions at the end of April, training twice per week. This means that the cost per session is equivalent to just £2.75.
