Crewe Judo Club was founded in 1981 by Sensei Alf Coyles, with CJC then being afiliated to the Budo Association of Great Britain. Since 1992, Chris Sharpe has been the Head coach at Crewe and over the years the club has celebrated many successes. The club offers a range of affordable classes for all age groups from the age of 5 upwards and for all abilities.
Our Junior class runs on a Wednesday evening from 7pm until 8pm. Children are able to join Crewe Judo Club from the age of 5 years of age. The sessions are taught utilising judo related games to ensure that the session is fun..
Our adult students at Crewe Judo Club range from 16 years of age up to 50+. Students work through the full range of judo techniques (throws, holds, armlocks and chokes) and also train in competitive judo and kata. Many also enter tournaments throughout the UK. The adults class trains every Monday and Wednesday evening.
Through the British Judo Association and other affilliated organisations, the club is very active on the competition scene. Many of the tournaments we enter are in the UK, however, previusly we have had students compete in Belgium.
Judo training is a great way to get yourself fit. You will be introduced to a range of warmup techniques at the start of the class and due to the nature of the sport, you will find your cardio will increase. .
The first thing you will notice at Crewe Judo Club is the friendly atmosphere, with everyone willing to help each other. Advice is always on hand and for those that decide to take the sport further by entering tournaments or going on courses/seminars, you will meet new friends through an extended judo family.
