About us

The club is run entirely by volunteers. The general running of the club is managed by a committee formed of club members and parents. We have 5 British Judo Club accredited coaches, plus a number of helpers on the mat delivering Judo sessions. We also have a number of helpers that deal with the administrative side of the club such as manning the front desk.
