Club Information

Cambridge Judo Club, developed since 1906, welcomes adults from across Cambridge and the world, students and non-students.

We are a vibrant club with a diverse membership of beginners, social judoka and talented amateurs from Cambridge University and the surrounding area. We train hard, but with an ethos of fun, respect and personal development, so we cater for everyone from complete beginners to international-standard black belts.

We are also a social club, and regularly organise social events; from a post-training pint and/or meal and formal dinners, to trips away in England and abroad. The club has recently visited Germany, Finland, Poland, Belgium and Japan.

Please just come along to a training session to join in or find out more, or email if you have any further questions.

Check out the Training and Membership pages for more information on when we train and how to become a member.

The Club is affiliated to the British Judo Association (BJA), which is the largest Governing body in the UK and a member of the International Judo Federation.


Training is suspended as of 16/03/2020 until further notice following advice from the government to avoid all non-essential contact, with regards to the spread of covid-19. We hope that everyone continues to stay safe and well in these challenging times.

These are the regular training times for the year 2019-2020. Beginners are more than welcome to directly turn up at any Thursday sessions.  If you’re comfortable with break falling, have a Judogi and know a few techniques then you will cope with any of the sessions. If you are really unsure which session is appropriate then drop us an email at or fill out this enquiry form.

As a mixed University-City club, we train all year long. The minimum age is 16.
