Fancy trying a new sport?

Come and try the Olympic martial art of Judo! You may have seen it in the Rio Olympics 2016, it's an exciting and dynamic Japanese martial art focussed on grappling, throwing technique, pins and submissions. It is an all inclusive sport that has seen many successes for Team GB in recent years, Team GB won a silver medal at the UK 2012 Olympics and a bronze at the 2016 Rio Olympics. More recently, Team GB players medalled at the Paris Grand Slam 2018, with Sally Conway winning Gold in the women's u70kg category, and Ashley Mckenzie winning Bronze in the men's u60kg category! 

Here is a YouTube link to the Paris Grand Slam 2018 highlights: watch
