Edinburgh University Judo Club provides high calibre coaching suitable for all; beginner, casual, or competitive, competing in both team and individual events at intermediate & experienced levels.
Judo is a Japanese martial art and Olympic sport which:
• Centers around throwing your opponent to the ground with a combination of strength, dexterity and technique.
• Includes a groundwork element which emphasizes armbars, chokes and pins.
• Gives you the opportunity to engage in genuine physical combat with your opponent.
• Combines strength, cardio and self-defense training for a fantastic all-round workout.
All our training sessions take place at St. Leonard's Land, Holyrood Rd, Edinburgh EH8 8AQ.
Tuesday: 20:30 - 22:00 (Gym 2)
Thursday: 19:00 - 22:00 (Gym 2)
Saturday: 12:30 - 15:00 (Gym 2)
Our Tuesday and Thursday late sessions are lead by our head coach, while Saturday early sessions are lead by some
of our high graded club members - who also happen to be coaches.
Take a water bottle, and wear comfortable exercise clothes with something full length on
the bottom half - so you don't get grazed on the mat!
Anyone is welcome, from people who have
been practicing judo for years to absolute beginners.
