Welcome to J.W Judo Academy, where we have a passion for teaching children and we excel at it!

Our classes are available throughout Berkshire and Buckinghamshire, offering a fantastic opportunity for children aged 5 to 16 years old. Whether your child is seeking a fun activity or aiming to compete at national and international levels, J.W Judo Academy is the perfect place for them.

Here's what you can expect when you join us:

- The first session is always on us! It's completely free, allowing your child to get a taste of what judo is all about and ensuring they truly enjoy it. We also invite parents to stay and witness the trial sessions, providing peace of mind and an opportunity to see the magic unfold. If you have any concerns or questions, please don't hesitate to let us know. We have proudly welcomed thousands of children into our Judo family over the years, and we are confident that we can support your child's journey as well.

- Dress comfortably! Children should wear jogging bottoms or tracksuit bottoms (without zips) along with a t-shirt or sweatshirt. Judo is practiced barefoot, and your child will be provided with a judo jacket for the initial session. We want them to feel comfortable and ready to embrace the martial art.

Now, let's talk about what we expect from you:

- As a responsible and well-managed sport, we require all participants to sign up for membership with our governing body, British Judo. We kindly ask that you complete this registration before your child's first arranged class with us. The good news is that British Judo is currently offering a free 3-month Introductory membership for new applicants. This ensures that your child is officially registered 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 recognized grading scheme. Most importantly, it provides insurance coverage, which is a prerequisite for stepping onto the mat and guarantees the safety of all participants.

Join us at J.W Judo Academy, where your child's passion for judo will thrive, and their skills will soar!
