Welcome to J.W. Judo Academy, where we value community and strive to teach children of all skill levels.

At J.W. Judo Academy, we offer classes in schools across Berkshire and Buckinghamshire for children aged 5 to 11. Whether your child is seeking an exciting new activity or has aspirations to compete at higher levels, our academy provides the perfect environment for them to learn and grow. By joining us, your child will not only learn the art of judo but also develop discipline, self-confidence, and a sense of community.

Here's what you can expect when you join us:
As a part of our welcoming approach, we offer your child's first judo session for free. This allows them to experience judo and decide if it's the right fit. We also encourage parents to stay and observe the trial sessions, giving you a firsthand look at our teaching methods and the positive environment we foster. If you have any questions or concerns, we are here to address them. We take pride in welcoming thousands of children into our Judo family and are committed to supporting each child's unique journey.

For your child's first class, Kids should wear track bottoms, track tops (without zips), or a long-sleeved T-shirt to dress comfortably. Judo is practised barefoot, and your child will receive a judo jacket for the first session.

Now, let's talk about the requirements:
We require all participants to join our governing body, British Judo. Please complete this registration before your child's first arranged class with us. British Judo offers a free 3-month introductory membership for new applicants to officially register their child as a judoka with our club. After the introductory period, you can apply for a full membership, which grants access to exciting competitions and a nationally recognised grading scheme. Most importantly, it provides insurance coverage to guarantee the safety of all participants.

Join us at J.W. Judo Academy, where your child can thrive and develop their passion for judo!
