We have extensive experience and expertise in Judo and our friendly classes, based in our full-time fitness centre in Easingwold, teach traditional Judo to the highest standard.

Classes vary week to week to keep them fun and challenging, covering various techniques including controlled falls, throws and lifts, grabs, and everything you need to pin your opponents down to the ground, and keep them there with various holds and joint locks (whilst still keeping it safe and fun!).
