Coventry Judo Club

Judo was created as a physical, mental and moral pedagogy in Japan, in 1882, by Jigoro Kano. It is generally categorized as a modern martial art which later evolved into a combat and Olympic sport.

The aim is to throw your opponent on their back, pin them or subdue them using joint locks and pins. Kano created the combat sport of Judo so the martial art could be practised at full force whilst maintaining the safety of the fighters. Because of this, Judo is great for general fitness, strength and self-defence.

It encourages hard work and self-discipline, the only way to become successful is through practice and regular training. For this reason it is also perfect for children and being an Olympic sport, there is a solid infrastructure to help kids become World Champions.

Coventry Judo Club is a member club of the British Judo Association.

All staff and volunteers are Extended CRB checked. We follow BJA’s, Child Protection & Vulnerable Adults Policies and Procedures that are available for download from the BJA website.
