Benefits of judo


By training judo you'll get an engaging and enjoyable full-body workout to add to your busy schedule, allowing you to stay in great shape.

While practising judo, you’ll learn about the ‘gentle way’ philosophy that is the core of this martial art.
Rather than defeating the opponent using your strength, we’ll teach you how to use the movements of the rivals to skilfully defeat them.

Knowledge of how to defend yourself and the ability to defeat a much bigger opponent, using their strength against them, highly increases your self-confidence in every moment of your life.

Training martial arts increases focus and your problem-solving skills through learning self-defence techniques. That will allow you to feel safe in any situation, even outside of the dojo.

Above all, you will make new friends in the judo community - people who got your back and are always there to help.


Absolutely! Whether you have some martial arts experience, or you are totally green, judo is a sport for you.

We run classes suitable for all ages and fitness levels.
