Welcome to Ipswich Judo Club

We are a family oriented Judo club based at Northgate Sports Centre in Ipswich and have been running Judo sessions for over 50 years. We are affiliated to the British Judo Association, with qualified coaches running all sessions including two 6th Dan senior coaches. We cater for all ages from 5 up to 65+, whether your aim is to compete or simply to take part in recreational Judo to make friends, keep fit and learn a new discipline.

Ipswich Judo Club Covid Information

We run classes for three different groups:

  • Under 8s,
  • Juniors (8-15)
  • and Seniors (16+).

We welcome new beginners and encourage parents to stay and watch their children flourish into accomplished Judo players. We sometimes find that the parents choose to give it a go too!
