As of August 2021 we have been allowed to return to some form of normality for our judo training, we will be remaining vigilant with most of our COVID safety measures still intact but with one major change for the better....

Judo FULL-CONTACT is now permitted for Seniors as well as Juniors. We will have some restrictions in numbers but we have completed the risk assessment required (you can read a copy here: and have increased the numbers for both senior and junior classes for Monday & Thursdays. We will be reverting to our original times and age groups:

MONDAY 6:30pm-7:15pm Junior session 5-7 years old

MONDAY 7:30pm-9:30pm Senior session over 16 years old

THURSDAY 6:30pm-7:15pm Junior session 8-15 years old

FRIDAYS are under review at the moment, but hope to be back soon
