Saturdays and Sundays are subject to cancellation/change when we have events on.

Notes on new sessions (sessions in blue are new additions or adjustments):

Monday parents/seniors is a gentle, go-at-own pace learning session. If numbers quickly grow on this, other sessions may be added on different days.

Stu’s two senior sessions are for younger/more competitive seniors.

Nigel’s Tuesday session will not start until August 10th. The mat will be available 7-8pm before that by arrangement for informal senior practice.

Tuesday experienced players will tend to be crash bang randori! Thursdays will be slightly more drills orientated, but both will be similar. Ian will hopefully return later.


U12 years: Friday or Saturday U8 or red belts session.

12-15 years: by arrangement, see Andrew

16+ years: either Matthew on Mondays or Stu on Tuesdays or Sundays, depending on age/intent.

If you are interested in joining the club, please email the head coach at andrewhaffner@btinternet.com and he will send you all the info.

Competitions and courses are planned to resume in September and our schedule of events is now planned and will be on the website shortly. We have not forgotten that we have some entry fees for events which have been cancelled, these will be used for rearranged events of the player’s choice when we are able to resume, or if you have entered and would prefer a refund, please email the head coach as above.

Samurai Judo Club is a registered charity which caters for people of all ages from 6 to 70 who are interested in judo. We have players at all competitive levels as well as recreational players. We also have some of the highest level referees and competition organisers in Great Britain.

We welcome new members, whether new to judo or experienced.
