Welcome to Cedars Judo Club

We think Judo is rather special

We believe that most sports are great for kids and adults. However judo has got to be among the best of them all. Maybe we are biased but we think judo, is rather special and it's unlike many sports, as it really is a sport that everyone can do, no matter what size, shape or age you are. Because of the large range of techniques and ways of doing each technique, everyone can find something to suit them.

How good at Judo could I be?

You don't have to be exceptionally talented, or have amazing physical potential ... any dedicated person can become a really good Judoka ... and if they want it badly enough, even a champion.

Judo for Fitness, Confidence, Self-Respect and Discipline

Judo helps your fitness levels and is an all-over work-out. Any typical judo session includes exercises that improve your cardio vascular system, endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, core stability and co-ordination. Many people find that lessons learnt on the mat help you in every aspect of life - increased confidence, self-respect, discipline and respect for other people.
