Just a quick update on the return to Judo. 

The Judo Association have now confirmed that Judo for Under 18 years old can start back from the middle of April 2021, subject to certain restrictions and proceedures being put into place.

I'm currently waiting on confirmation from the College that we can start to use the Sports Hall.

Once I have confirmation I will publish the start back date and times as these will be different to normal due to restricted numbers and interaction times etc.

I will keep you appraised as I know more.

Looking forward to seeing you all very soon.


Welcome to Cedars Judo Club

The Club was started in 1963 as an evening class held in one of the rooms at the old ‘Cedars' house on Shilton Road in Barwell. After several moves due to the club out growing it’s venues it eventually ended up in the main sports hall at the Heath Lane Academy in Earl Shilton. It’s now one of the largest clubs in the area with 200 square metres of mat area.

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.
