Judo

Judo is an Olympic sport and martial art comprising of throws, holds, strangles and armlocks, the aim is to use your opponent’s weight against them, this means that your size doesn’t matter. We are coached by Fitzroy Davies, 6th Dan, who previously coached Craig Fallon who was both an Olympian and World Champion at U60kg, his expertise both technically and competitively allows every player to reach their goals. We are a friendly club that accepts players of all skill levels from the elite to complete novices.
