Welcome to the new website for the Shidokai judo club. The Club was founded by Sensei Keith Henson in 2004 to give local people the chance to experience Judo in a friendly atmosphere where contest is encouraged but not compulsory and everyone can feel safe and enjoy training to whatever level they choose.
We are members of the British Judo Council (BJC) & Bushido Zazen International Martial Arts Society and all Instructors and club are fully insured through these organisations. To see more about the BZIMAS & the BJC see their websites:
When and Where we pratice
We meet every Friday at our dojo (practice hall) in the Scotch Horn Leisure Centre:
Scotch Horn Leisure Centre
6:30 – 7:30: Primaries.
7:30 – 9:00: Juniors & Seniors.
Newcomers of all ages and abilities are always welcome and if you are new to Judo, please come along for to see if seems to be something you might enjoy. There’s no need to invest in a Gi (suit) for the first few weeks, as a track suit or other similar clothes will be ok.
Please contact us if you would like to come along or if you have any questions you’d like to ask beforehand otherwise just jump on the mat for a warm welcome.
