The Budokwai began as a Judo club and offers classes in Judo throughout the week. We also offer regular classes in Shotokan Karate, Brazilian Jui-Jitsu and Aikido as well as Hontai Yoshin Ryu Ju-Jitsu and Pilates. Our instructors are all highly qualified, experienced and able to offer a range of coaching and instruction for the complete novice through to Olympic standard. Beginners are carefully taught techniques most suited to their ability and proceed up the grades towards the much-coveted Dan grade and Black Belt. The junior instructors are of the same high standard and the children's classes in Judo and Karate attract a great number of youngsters every week.
