See below for directions on how to find us.
After school hours the best way to find the club is to enter the schools complex via the rear entrance at the end of Bradfields Avenue. Once through the main gates, keep coming to the right for as far as you can. Just by the green army cadet hut you will see the green rear gates into the school. Come through these and along the corridor to your left and the Main Hall is just at the end of the corridor.
At the top level judo is a fantastic spectator sport filled with some of the fittest athletes in the word producing some of the most exciting throws.
The following two clips show life at one of the top international training camps which judo athletes from around the world attend on a regular basis as part of their preparation for top tournaments.
