British Judo Calendar


Northbrook Calendar








































































Northbrook Kyu Shin Kai Judo club was started some 30 years ago and has grown from strength to strength ever since. We are affiliated to the British Judo Association (BJA ) and were awarded BJA club of the year 2011. We have also received the Sport England Silver Club Mark Award at 3 of our venues which we believe is an outstanding achievement underlying our commitment as a quality club.



We try very hard to provide the right balance for our students taking a structured approach to our teaching methodology. In this way we involve students in all aspects of judo depending on their preference and abilities.



In order that individuals can train in an appropriate environment in we hold different classes on different evenings. For example, we have and continue to increase our offer to include: A competition squad training evening, a young peoples coaching programme, a young peoples referee and officiating programme, a senior only evening.



In addition to the above we hold an annual tournament open to all BJA clubs and associated organisations. We also hold regular mini inter schools and club competitions for mini mon competitors from the 14 schools we teach in and our 4 different venues. 



Our club is one big family and is aimed at the local community and we believe there are a number of benefits for both young and older people to get people involved:



• Judo provides opportunities for young people to attend a professionally run and established club run by qualified and dedicated coaches and attended by students from different schools, different social backgrounds and different ethnic origin.



• Because Judo is a contact sport it is an excellent way of integrating people from different areas of society and installing respect and discipline.



• There is an ever increasing need for people to exercise and Judo is acknowledged as one of the best sports for obtaining and sustaining physical fitness in a fun way.



• Judo teaches and practices one to one physical sport in a controlled and managed way with a focus on fair play and respect.



• Judo is a sport where people can practice as individuals as opposed to being in a team where only the best players are included. 



• Judo has a structured grading system which provides the students with targets to aim for which is good for their development and personal to them.


• Judo gives provides the opportunity to be the best you can in a safe environment.





We are very strict in our teaching of etiquette, courtesy, respect for yourself and for others and general good behaviour!
